Harry’s wife took an unusual look at their privacy and appealed to women
Meghan Markle opened the doors of his new home in Santa Barbara, California, and presented his backyard.
As part of the Makers project, which recognizes those characters who have promoted female empowerment in the United States, the Duchess of Sussex sat down to chat with the icon of feminism Gloria Steinem.
The former actress spoke with Steinem about women’s rights, the importance of representation and the need for new generations to participate in the next US elections.
“‘If you don’t vote, you don’t exist.’ Those words of Gloria Steinmen have stayed with me from the moment she said them to me during this conversation ”, Markle wrote as an introduction.
During the talk, which was documented on video, the two celebrated Kamala Harris seeking the post of vice president for the Democratic Party.
“Whether it’s for a doll or someone in public office, you need to have someone who looks something like you. As many of us believe, you can only be what you see. And if there isn’t that, how can you aspire to something greater than what you can see in your own world? I think now we are progressing in a different way “Markle said.
Prince Harry’s wife, who wore Anine Bing pants, Stella McCartney sandals and a Janessa Leone hat, moved last month to a new residence valued at $ 14 million.
At one point, they both spoke about how important the right to vote is as a way to honor all those women who have fought to get it.
The 39-year-old Duchess was concerned about voter suppression, especially by the black community.
“Every time someone tries to intimidate you to tell you to step out of line because you could be under surveillance or any number of intimidation tactics that are so scary.
Then you think, ‘You know, it’s not worth it.’ You decide to step out of line and give up your right to vote. That’s bad enough, but then there is a domino effect because whoever is at the end of the line says, “Whatever they did to you … I don’t want that to happen to me.” That, I think, is very scary. But I wonder how we avoid it and how do we make people feel empowered. “
The former Suits star also shared her understanding that the concepts of feminism and feminine are not exclusive. And that men, like Prince Henry, can be part of the feminist movement.
“I look at my son (Prince Archie) and it seems like a great example for me to grow up with a father who is comfortable with that as part of his personality. That he is not ashamed of being someone who advocates for the fundamental rights of all, which of course includes women “added.
