#Empowered ~ Prince Harry
Prince Harry, a proud feminist, who through philanthropic work has addressed issues of gender inequality across intersections and the globe. Whilst speaking at CHIME FOR CHANGE, Harry said:
“When women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them — their families, their communities, and their countries. This is not just about women, we men need to recognise the part we play too. Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve.”
Last year, when visiting Girls Summit in Katmandu, he delivered a powerful speech about women’s rights and education. Standing next to the first female Nepalese president, Bidhya Devi Bhandari, he declared her a role model, who should be acknowledge “loudly & openly”.
In a society that often rebukes feminism, Harry is following in his Granny’s footsteps and celebrating female empowerment.
