Meghan Markle Encourages Girls to Become Leaders in Resurfaced UN Ad
The Duchess of Sussex is all about female success.
The honeymoon certainly isn’t over between Meghan Markle and feminism.
The actress and UN Women ambassador appears in the short film alongside other prominent women from across the globe, set to a Florence and the Machine song titled ”Spectrum.”
The tagline of the video, which was first screened in 2015, reads, “We see potential leaders everywhere … It's time for more women to see it in themselves. Nominate a woman in your life.”
This is a sentiment Markle has repeated over the last year.
“I hear a lot of people saying when speaking about girls’ empowerment finding and knowing their worth, or women’s empowerment as well. You’ll often hear people say, you’re helping women find their voices,” Meghan told the audience at Royal Foundation Forum earlier this year.
“And I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find a voice, they have a voice," she said. "They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen."
