According to the publication, the issue is entitled 'Forces for Change' and Meghan will get a chance to highlight and celebrate "trailblazing female changemakers." This is a very significant feat considering that it's the first time a September issue of the magazine has been co-edited.

This issue will also bring to the spotlight some of the causes close to Meghan's heart including race, mental health, and female empowerment.

Meghan worked closely with the editorial team to carefully choose the women from various spheres such as fashion, technology, film and so on.

The Duchess of Sussex settled on a few women who she considers admirable and influential. Some of those who made the list are Jacinda Arden (Prime minister of New Zealand), Francesca Hayward (royal Ballet principal dancer), and Greta Thunberg (climate change campaigner).

Other women that have captured the admiration of the royal mother of one include Jameela Jamil (body positivity advocate), Ramla Ali (boxer), and Christy Burlington Burns (founder of Every Mother Counts).

These women were considered worthy of the magazine issue for various reasons. 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, for example, made waves when she protested outside the Swedish Parliament to ensure they took immediate actions to fight climate change. She has gone on to gain worldwide attention and even spoke at the United Nations Climate Talks in Poland in 2018.

Jacinda Arden is the world's youngest female head of government as she took office at age 37. Somali boxer Ramla Ali was also featured as the African Zone Featherweight Champion.

With such impressive feats in their respective areas of interests, we can understand why the Duchess feels these strong women deserve to be celebrated.
