Last week was International Women’s Day and also an important week for the former Meghan Markle who was appointed by Queen Elizabeth, the Vice President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trus t on Friday.
The organization supports young leaders promoting social change, bettering their communities and providing work opportunities and hope for others across the globe.
Prince Harry is the president.
As part of her new role, the Duchess of Sussex will spotlight the work of the Trust with young leaders across the Commonwealth, in particular, the work of those supporting women and girls.
Perfect for this Women’s History Month!
To celebrate the new appointment and International Women’s Day, the duchess also spoke on a panel of female thought-leaders and activists at King’s College London.
“If things are wrong and there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something” she stated on the panel while wearing the Azzura Swirl Printed Shift dress by Reiss ($345) under a black Alexander McQueen Leaf Crepe blazer ( $1995), black Manolo Blahnik suede ‘BB’ Pointy Toe Pumps ($625) while carrying a leather with gold accent Stella McCartney Shaggy Deer Faux Leather Crossbody Bag and diamond pearl drop earrings by Caroline Parr with her hair in a messy bun.
Among several things she revealed during that panel is that she has canceled social media, explaining that she doesn’t engage with social media much as a personal choice, in an effort to avoid “getting muddled” by the “noise,” the UK’s Press Association (PA) news agency reports.
The response came after the former Suits TV star was asked how she felt about headlines that called her feminism “trendy.”
She replied: “I don’t read anything, it’s much safer that way, but 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.”
She cotinued: “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.”
When asked later if she looked at Twitter, she replied: “No, sorry, no. For me that’s my personal preference.”
