Raised as a feminist

The Duchess of Sussex claims will bring up her baby a feminist regardless of gender. She made such a sensational statement at the International Women's Day event in London, while being asked by chair Anne McElvoy about the future baby.

It's funny, I've actually been joking in the past few weeks…I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy is, 'I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism. I loved that, so boy or girl, or whatever it is, we hope that's the case.

It was also reported that the royal couple decided not to find out the gender of their future baby. Nevertheless, we will have the opportunity to know it pretty soon, as Meghan’s due date is late April.
