Mumbai (Web Desk): Priyanka Chopra teamed up with Meghan Markle to speak up about women empowerment for the Girl Up Leadership Summit.
“The women who came before us fought for our right to vote and to work - today we don’t even think about it! Now it’s our turn to do the same for future girls,” Chopra said.
“You don’t need millions of followers on social media to make a difference. All you need is heart, drive, and commitment. No act is too small. No age is too young,” she added.
Detailing the struggles of refugees and how the pandemic has intensified their challenges, the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador said: “To recognize that even social distancing is a privilege --because people living in extreme poverty and refugees sheltering in makeshift tents, don’t have the luxury of staying six feet apart.”
Meghan Markle too had joined the conference with her keynote address that encouraged young women to use their voices in a time when they "have never been more urgently needed."
