The panel included celebrities and activists such as; musician and activist Annie Lennox, model and activist Adwoa Aboah, former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard, Let Us Learn founder Chrisann Jarrett and executive director of Campaign for Female Education, Angeline Murimirwa.

Friday’s event was designed to bring together an empowering panel of female ‘thought-leaders’ and activists to talk about some of the obstacles faced by women in the world today, including access to education and limitations within employment.

During the panel discussion, Meghan Markle jokingly said that she could feel the ‘embryonic kick of feminism’ inside her. The Duchess had seen a documentary about feminism on Netflix and loved it. She hopes that’s the case, whatever she’s having, boy or girl.

The Duchess spoke to an audience packed with, students, opinion formers and young leaders. She said that it would be impossible for her to sit back and not do anything and that she’s very privileged to be able to travel to fifty-three Commonwealth countries and across the globe to promote global feminism, and equality for all.
