The Duchess of Sussex took part in a panel discussion on International Women’s Day, hosted by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which she was named Vice President last Friday morning.
The Duchess replied to various questions, such as if she’ll raise her child to be a feminst, where she replied to:
It’s funny, I’d actually been joking these past few weeks I’d seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism’. I loved that.
Also among the topics Meghan discussed with the panel include how men can be supportive allies and feminists, and how this helps gender equality.
I think in terms of masculinity, you understand your strength includes knowing your vulnerabilities and your sense of self and security. Your confidence comes in knowing that a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you shouldn’t be threatened about.
The Duchess also answered the question, why she doesn’t use or owns any private social media accounts, such as Twitter and Instagram, anymore. She replied:
Equally, that’s just my own personal preference because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days, as opposed to getting muddled with that to focus on the real cause. So for me, I think the idea of making the word feminism trendy, that doesn’t make any sense to me personally, right? This is something that is going to be part of the conversation forever. Hashtags are not enough. We have a responsibility as well, that if you’re part of social media and engaging in that way, we’re not just giving people more things to chat about but actually something to do. It’s our responsibility to make a choice on what we click on, we make a choice of what we read, we make a choice of we engage in, that’s our personal decision to not be there for negativity, to be more positive and action based. And that for me that’s a tricky one because I’m not part of any of that.
WE was founded in 1995 by then-12-year-old Craig Kielburger after he read a newspaper story about Iqbal Masih, a former slave who was murdered after speaking out against the horrors of child labour. The tale struck a nerve, and Craig knew he had to do something to help free other children embroiled in child labour. Along with his older brother, Marc Kielburger, he started WE Charity.
More than 20 years later, WE Charity has expanded beyond the issue of child labour to include a sustainable model of international development, called WE Villages, that works to alleviate the root causes of poverty in nine countries around the world.
