Meghan, who was among the evening’s honorees was also supported by Doria Ragland, her mother, She wore a black minidress with sheer bishop sleeves and chic slingback shoes.
During her six minute speech, she highlighted her lifelong feminist activism and the impact her mom’s subscription to Ms. Gloria Steinem’s magazine had on her growing up. “I also knew that to my mom—to my dear mom who I’m honored to have here with me tonight—I knew that the significance of these magazines was important,” she said during her speech. “I mean, it wasn’t a one off. She had a subscription!”
Adding, “When I reflect on the time in my life, when I was young, the imprints that were etched in my mind, I can now connect the dots in a much better way to understand how I became a young feminist and evolved into a grown activist,” she said, per People.
Following the ceremony, Meghan and Harry were captured leaving the building, holding hands and grinning broadly as they made their way to their car.
