[WATCH] Meghan Markle Shows Support Of #MeToo & #TimesUp Movement
Meghan Markle in her first joint royal appearance with Prince Harry, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, spoke up in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp Movements.

“I hear a lot of people speaking about girls’ empowerment, finding and knowing their worth, and women’s empowerment as well. You’ll often hear people saying but you’re helping women find their voices,” Markle said during the first annual forum for the Royal Foundation, a charitable organization founded by the princes in 2009, according to the Huffington Post.

“I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find a voice, they have a voice, they need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be urged to listen.” 

She added: “Right now with so many campaigns, Me Too and Time’s Up, there is no better time to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that. It makes such a tremendous difference”
