Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem had a conversation about the representation of women and discussed and how things have changed for feminists.
The duo first spoke about the film, ‘The Glorias,’ based on the life story of Gloria Steinem and directed by Julie Taymor. Regarding the film, the Duchess of Sussex said:
“It’s not mutually exclusive to be a feminist and be feminine.”
Then Steinem responded to her saying it was possible to be a feminist and be masculine and a guy. Markel confirmed her quickly and stated:
“Gloria Steinem! I love that when he just came in he said, ‘You know that I’m a feminist too, right Gloria?! It’s really important to me that you know that.’”
Markel continued by praising Prince Harry as a feminist role model for their one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
“I look at our son and what a beautiful example that he gets to grow up with a father who is so comfortable owning that as part of his own self-identification. That there’s no shame in being someone who advocates for fundamental human rights for everyone, which of course includes women.”
Steinem added Prince Harry was a nurturing father, and Archie would grow up knowing it’s okay to be loving. Duchess replied as follows:
“Well said. I know it’ll mean a lot to him when I share that.”
