Meghan Markle May Join The Political Sphere

Meghan Markle, who has had a whirlwind career within the public eye, from being an actress on “Suits” to a British Royal, to leaving the UK with Prince Harry for a non-royal life in the US. Now, following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Meghan has been vocal about her position opposing the Supreme Court’s decision, with some speculation regarding her interest in going into politics in the near future. In fact, Markle has even expressed that she would consider running for president, with her primary agenda focusing on finally passing the Equal Rights Amendment and fighting for the equality of women that has been severely diminished recently.

Meghan spoke with the iconic feminist, activist, and journalist Gloria Steinem in an interview for Vogue recently, revealing the devastation that she and her husband, Prince Harry, felt after the Roe v. Wade verdict. They have two children together, Archie and Lilibet, but Meghan has been open about suffering from a miscarriage before the birth of Lilibet, which has ultimately made her more conscious of the dangers that women face in light of the abortion ban. The Duchess of Sussex also expressed her concern that more men are not speaking out against the Roe. v Wade decision, sharing how Prince Harry is a feminist himself and anyone who is a father or husband themselves should recognize how women’s physical safety is being put at risk due to this Supreme Court decision.

The large platform that Meghan Markle already has as a Royal living in the U.S. gives her a leg-up as a possible competitor in the political sphere; speaking with Gloria Steinem, regarding rallying for the ERA, prompted Meghan to declare “Well, Gloria, maybe it seems as though you and I will be taking a trip to [Washington] D.C. together soon.” While Meghan may be widely viewed as nothing more than another celebrity trying to throw her hat in the political ring, reading or watching any interview with her reveals how eloquent she is, and the genuine interest she has to fundamentally change the gender inequalities within the US.

    Herschel Walker: What Happens Next?

According to the Daily Beast, Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009.

    What Western Media Excludes in their Coverage of the Russia Ukraine War

    he U.S. media’s reporting on the Russian-Ukraine war fails to recognize the most rational solution to the crisis: negotiations. Throughout reports, Western media has misrepresented the extent of the global community that supports increased warfare in the region. One example of a mischaracterization conducted by western media occurred in reports of a meeting between the Indian President, Modi, and Putin. The west reported on a series of words where the president said, “war is not the answer,” illustrating Modi’s opposition to Putin’s position. However, in reality, once the transcript of the meeting is read, it becomes clear the meeting between the two leaders was one of support, where Modi repeatedly vocalized the positive relations between the countries and India’s approval of Russia’s policy in Ukraine.
