Meghan let her feminist flag fly high, talking about the importance of all people around the world treating women and girls as equal.
The Royal UK brings the best quotes from the soon-to-be royal mother and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. You will be surprised after reading them.
- “If there was wrong, if there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to do something. And why not me”?
- “There’s nothing threatening about a woman coming up to the same level. It’s our safety in numbers. Men are part of the conversation. My husband certainly is”!
- “It’s not only about girls going to school and becoming smart girls. It’s actually knowing that those smart girls become influential women, and that ends up changing the world for the better”.

- “I think it would be impossible to not have boys. Especially as part of this conversation. Just picture how much courage it takes for a young girl in a small village, where most of the girls haven’t gone to school. And they are reaching out, doing whatever they can, walking miles to be able to get an education”.
- “This is something that is going to be part of the conversation forever. And, I think the more that we normalise it, you see that, to the point of how men and boys should be part of the conversation, specifically in developing countries”.
- “I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism. And, one of the things they said during pregnancy is, ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism’. I really loved that, so boy or girl, or whatever it is, we hope that’s the case”.

- “At age 11, I had seen a commercial at the time that I thought to be very sexist. However, truth be told, at 11 I don’t think I even knew what sexism meant. I just knew that something struck me internally that was telling me it was wrong. And, I knew that it was wrong. So, using that as my moral compass and moving through from the age of 11 at that age, I was able to change this commercial”.
- “If you have boys as part of the conversation as well, you’re moving the needle in a different way. That’s because they’re not mimicking learned behaviour that could be incredibly sabotaging for young girls’ potential”.
- “Well, hashtags are just not enough”.
