Meghan's First Royal Speech Touched Students To The Core As She Shared Her Personal Experience: Voice Matters!

Date October 24, 2018

Meghan Markle has been a well-known women's rights advocate for decades. 

In 1995, she first faced inequality when a TV commercial of washing liquid stated "Women all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans" and boys started laughing and saying that it was the ideal place for a female.

Being furious, she tried to speak against it, fight, and alter this concept.

It just wasn’t right, and something needed to be done.

Encouraged by her father, 11-year-old Meghan wrote a letter to Hillary Clinton, Linda Ellerbee, Gloria Alred, and the discriminating dishing company. To her surprise, all of them responded a few weeks later, and the slogan of TV commercial changed to "People all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans."

Since 2004, she's been UN Women advocate. She realized that she could have made a significant impact on the global arena by her voice.

In doing this, we remind girls that their small voices are in fact not small at all, and that they can affect change.
