Meghan And Harry Make Their Stance On Feminism Clear

Stepping down from their royal duties hasn't slowed down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's charity work. In 2020, they founded their own non-profit foundation, Archewell, with "a core purpose is to uplift and unite communities — local and global, online and offline — one act of compassion at a time." Since its inception, the foundation has partnered with a variety of organizations, including Global Citizen, which helps to combat vaccine inequity; the Aspen Institute, which helps develop ways to battle misinformation; and World Central Kitchen, which operates in Dominica, Puerto Rico, and India to help with hunger relief.

For their efforts, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received the President's Award at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards on February 26. "I think it's safe to say that I come from a very different background from my incredible wife, yet our lives were brought together for a reason," Harry said during the couple's acceptance speech (via E! News). "We share a commitment to a life of service, a responsibility to combat injustice, and a belief that the most often overlooked are the most important to listen to."

The couple seems to always be looking for ways to help out, and with March being Women's History Month, Harry and Meghan are showing their support for females through their foundation.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are donating to organizations focused on gender equality

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they will be handing out grants to four organizations focused on gender equity: The Center on Poverty and Inequality at Georgetown University Law Center, National Women's Law Center, The 19th, and Smart Works. "As we cross into Women's History Month, and ahead of International Women's Day next week, Archewell Foundation is announcing a number of non-profit investments in leading organizations working to advance gender equity, build policies that empower women and families, ensure meaningful media representation for women, and provide women with a network of tools and support for gaining employment," they wrote on their website.

Meghan has been a fierce advocate for women through the years. She was named a United Nations Women's Advocate for Women's Political Participation and Leadership in 2015, and two years later went to India to meet girls and women "directly impacted by the stigmatization of menstrual health and to learn how it hinders girls' education," which she wrote about for Time. She has also spoken out about women's right to education, as well as the plight of sex workers.

And Harry has also become a champion for women. "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," Meghan told Gloria Steinem in 2020 (per Yahoo).
