Meghan Markle sits down with Canadian charity championing women's rights

She might be quitting the royal family but that doesn’t mean Meghan Markle has any plans to retire from public life or helping others. 

Currently in Canada, the Duchess of Sussex has been spending her time visiting several charities including the Downtown Eastside Women’s Center in Vancouver and Justice for Girls, a charity dedicated to fighting homelessness, poverty and violence and how these injustices have more of a detrimental impact on young women. 

“We believe it is necessary to eliminate violence and poverty in young women’s lives in order to bring about equality. Recognizing and addressing the intersecting/interlocking forms of oppression that young women face is fundamental to our work toward ending violence against girls and young women,” it writes on its website.

Taking to Twitter, the organisations shared several pictures of Meghan chatting to its members, and revealed that during her visit she discussed “climate justice for girls and the rights of Indigenous peoples”.

“Was great to talk about the importance of a holistic approach to social justice, and the power of young women’s leadership,” it added.
