“Men need to be vocal in this moment and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families, and communities at large,” Meghan said during the interview, in conversation with News Not Noise founder Jessica Yellin and longtime women’s rights advocate Gloria Steinem.
“They may target women, but the consequences impact all of us,” the royal said. “My husband and I talked about that a lot over the past few days. He’s a feminist too.”
“And his reaction last week was guttural, like mine. I know that for so many women right now, there is a sentiment of despair. But again, we have to band together and not wallow. We have to do the work.”
Meghan spoke to Vogue about how the decision will impact those without resources and women of colour, who already face high mortality rates in pregnancy alone.
“It’s difficult to overstate what this decision is going to do to these communities,” the duchess said.
“This moment requires unity — really listening to people, understanding the Constitution was written at a time when women were second-class citizens,” she added. “We’re not. Certain things need to change.”
