Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Announce Next Major Event (& It's with a World-Famous Guest)
Meghan Markle makes it a tradition to honor International Girls' Day. And this year, she will team up with her husband, Prince Harry, and a very special guest - well-known activist Malala Yousafzai.
Per Harper's Bazaar, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will participate in a virtual video chat (broadcast live on YouTube and the Malala Fund's social media platforms) with the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate on October 11th to discuss “why This is important advocates every girl's right to learn. “During the event, the trio will also talk about the challenges millions of girls face in gaining access to education around the world.
Last year, in honor of International Girls' Day, Markle shared a video on her @SussexRoyal Instagram (RIP) account with a special message about gender inequality and some flashbacks from her early days as a suffragette. Markle's post included her 2015 speech to the United Nations and a news segment where she appeared at the age of 11 challenging a sexist commercial for ivory dish soap and writing a letter to Procter & Gamble.
"Today is International #DayoftheGirl, a day celebrated around the world and launched by the United Nations to recognize gender inequality around the world," she said. "Be it lack of access to education, stigma associated with menstrual hygiene management, forced marriage of children, legal or medical inequality or gender-based violence, there is an urgent need to support young women on their way to excellence."
In Markle's own words, “Everyone should be given the opportunity to get the education they want, but more importantly, the education they are entitled to. And for women and girls in developing countries, this is vital. "
