The Duchess of Sussex isn’t afraid to speak out on things that really matter to her and has long been a vocal advocate for women’s issues. From her powerful speech on the importance of gender equality at a UN Women summit in 2015, to delivering a heartfelt speech about women’s suffrage while on a royal tour of New Zealand in 2018.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s take a look at some of Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex most inspirational quotes on Women

On Age

“As you get older, you become more comfortable in your skin and comfortable in saying no to things…I’ve also learned that saying no is just as valuable as saying yes. It’s something that, I think, comes with age and really having a sense of your self-worth. And then you make choices based on that.”

Know your Value

“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.”

Find a balance

“Take things with a grain of salt, and find balance within your life. On your lunch break, leave to go and get some fresh air. You don’t need to make your life your job. I have to find that balance for myself, as well…I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”

Be Kind to Yourself

We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be?”

You Are Enough

You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.” —The Tig, her former lifestyle website

International Women’s Day visit to Dagenham, 2020

The Duchess of Sussex has called on teenage boys to “value, appreciate and protect” the women in their lives, on a surprise school visit ahead of International Women’s Day. And she urged them to “set the example for some men who are not seeing it that same way”.

International Women’s Day panel discussion, 2019

“Your confidence comes in knowing that a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you shouldn’t be threatened about but, opposed to that, you should feel really empowered in having that additional support that this is really about us working together.

Equality

“That’s what gender equality means for me and having men part of that conversation saying there’s nothing threatening about a woman coming up to the same level, it’s our safety in numbers, this is our power and our strength as a team.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“Women need a seat at the table, they need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, they need to create their own table. We need a global understanding that we cannot implement change effectively without women’s political participation.”

Create and Cultivate online platform, 2016

“You don’t have to play dress up to be a feminist. You are a feminist exactly the way you are. You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of women. There’s no uniform for feminism; you are a feminist exactly the way you are.”

Meghan Markle open letter, 2014

“You need to know that you’re enough. A mantra that has now ingrained itself so deeply within me that not a day goes by without hearing it chime in my head. That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more make-up won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire – ‘you complete me’ – frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“Women make up more than half of the world’s population and potential, so it is neither just nor practical for their voices, for our voices, to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making.”

InStyle interview, 2015

“I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home, or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.”

The Royal Foundation Forum, 2018

“I hear a lot of people saying, when talking about girls’ empowerment and women as well, you’ll often hear people saying, ‘You’re helping them find their voices’, I fundamentally disagree with that. Women don’t need to find their voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.”

University of Johannesburg visit, 2019

“When we empower girls hungry for education, we cultivate women who are emboldened to effect change within their communities and globally.”

UN Women Conference, 2015

“It is said that girls with dreams become women with vision. May we empower each other to carry out such vision — because it isn’t enough to simply talk about equality. One must believe it. And it isn’t enough to simply believe in it. One must work at it. Let us work at it. Together. Starting now.”

Elle Magazine Canada, 2015

“Be kind to yourself. Truly, if we treated ourselves as well as we treated our best friends we would be a million miles ahead of the game.”

New Zealand royal tour, 2018

“Women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness. Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents: the basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community, the involvement and voice that allows you to be a part of the very world that you are a part of.

This is a new day. No more forever the victim. Try a different approach: forever the victor. Break that negative cycle.

You are not a victim. You’re a victor. You wouldn’t have opposition if there were not something amazing in your future. Keep a smile on your face. Keep a spring in your step. Stay positive. Stay hopeful. God is still on the throne.

You have to take the hand that you have been dealt and make the most of it.

Nothing that has happened to you has stopped your destiny. That person that did you wrong,walked away? It may have been painful but they did not ruin your life. They don’t have that much power. If they could stop God’s plan they would be bigger than God.

Don’t let one bad break, one injustice,one difficult season cause you to be sour or have a chip on your shoulder. As long as you accept you are a victim you are going to be stuck.

Don’t use your unfair situation as an excuse to feel sorry for yourself,to give up on life,to not Pursue on your dreams.

You are the generation that’s going to set a new standards. You are the one that is going to see this shift in your thinking. You are not a slave, victim, limited and at a disadvantage.

No more forever victim.

Do your part and put on those new clothes so to speak. See yourself differently. Have a new perspective. You are not a victim of your past or a victim of what didn’t work out. Instead, you are a Victor.

Some difficult situations are steps on the way to your destiny. That difficult situation is leading you to a new level. You won’t understand it now but that is a necessary step to get you to the throne. You won’t understand everything that happens along the way,there will be plenty of opportunities to be a victim,those are the test.

Will you keep the right attitude when it’s not fair,you feel like being discouraged,why did this happen, don’t ply that role,refuse to be a victim. It may have meant to be for your harm but at some point God is going to turn it into your advantage. It’s going to catapult you where you cannot go on your own.

Quotes by Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex

Personally, I don’t fuss about well known people, but there are certain people who draw me into them, for example, I could listen to Meghan Markle talk all day. Not only is she eloquent and extremely poised, but she is also full of wisdom — and let’s be real: she does not say things out of context or extra ordinary things that weren’t said before but whenever I listen to her I feel energized in a way .Who knows you could as well learn a thing or two from her.

“Women who had the strength to really stand up for something that they knew needed to be done is the best example of no matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what color you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.”

“Reflecting on where I came from helps me to appreciate and balance what I have now. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. My mother was a free-spirited clinical therapist, and I had the most hardworking father, a television lighting director by trade. My mum raised me to be a global citizen, with eyes open to sometimes harsh realities.”

“We are not meant to be breaking each other down; we are meant to be building each other up. So use your voice to do just that – build each other up, support each other. Your voices are those of truth. And hope. And your voices can and should be much louder.

I have to find that balance for myself, as well . . . I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”


“It’s not enough to just survive something, right? That’s not the point of life. You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy.”

“You need to know that you’re enough — a mantra that has now ingrained itself so deeply within me that not a day goes by without hearing it chime in my head. That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more makeup won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire, ‘You complete me,’ frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”
