Meghan Markle has continued to be an inspiration to young girls everywhere, and an activist for human rights around the world. 

So it should come as no surprise that on October 11, the UN's International Day of the Girl, the royal would share a positively empowering video. The footage features clips from an early feminist moment for the Duchess, which she referenced in her 2015 speech at the UN's Women's Conference.

The new mom gave birth to little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in May 2019, and has been keeping busy since.  

Markle is an advocate for women's rights and has been an inspiration as the first American and person of color to become a part of the British royal family. 

"Every girl has potential. She has promise. She has the right to learn, the right to be heard, the right to play, and to discover — the right to be exactly who she is," Markle said in the video. The short video, shared by the official shared account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, celebrates empowering young women. 

From the time she was a young girl, Markle has been a feminist, and made active steps to make the world a better place for women. 

When Markle was 11 years old, she wrote a letter to Procter & Gamble and asked the company to remove sexist language from a commercial — and the company did. "It is said that girls with dreams become women with vision," Markle said in a 2017 speech featured in the October 11 clip. 

Markle continues to advocate for women's rights and equality; in other words, we stan. 

The caption on the video reads, "Today is International #DayoftheGirl, a day observed globally and created by the United Nations to acknowledge the gender inequality that exists worldwide."

It continues, "Be it lack of access to education, stigma surrounding MHM, forced child marriage, legal or medical inequality, or gender-based violence, there is a pressing need to support young women in their path to excellence."

The short video and Markle's continued work with human rights groups, like World Vision, UN Women, and One Young World, prove that she is actively working to make a positive impact.
