International Women’s Day 2024

Mar. 2024

This afternoon, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex celebrated International Women’s Day at South By Southwest (SXSW) alongside fellow visionaries Katie Couric, Brooke Shields, and Nancy Wang Yuen. The group participated in a keynote panel discussion co-hosted by The Archewell Foundation about women’s representation in media and entertainment. 

Entitled “Breaking Barriers, Shaping Narratives: How Women Lead On and Off the Screen,” the discussion was a celebration of women who are driving culture change and creating true equity in the process. The panelists highlighted the importance of community and its role in fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment among women.

“The key thing that I think needs to be focused on in terms of equity is that it’s not a zero-sum game. Just because someone else has the same advantage that you do, doesn’t mean that you’re losing anything.” – Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex

The conversation concluded with panelists sharing their thoughts on building a more inclusive society and their hope for the future of media.
