While onstage, Meghan looked so proud to be sitting next to female activists who are using their voices to help women gain more self-confidence. The discussion was led by Anne McElvoy, Senior Editor of the Economist, who joined the rest of the panelists in talking about the “obstacles [that] still affect female empowerment across the world, including access to education and limitations within employment,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
