Meghan Markle Defends ‘Woke’

On her “Archetypes” podcast, Duchess Meghan Markle defended the idea of “woke,” arguing that various words, including “woke” are “unnecessarily charged as it pertains to women.” Although the duchess admitted the discussion is “spoon-feeding the click bait,” she added that “woke” simply means to be “alert to injustice in society, especially racism.”

From Sputnik News:

"Now, what's loaded or wrong with that? And when you layer a woman into that seemingly anodyne definition, it becomes for many almost disgusting, 'outrageous,' they would say but why?” the Duchess pondered. "What is so scary about a woman having an opinion as strongly as a man does? And why do we sometimes cower to that? Turtle, as I often say... go back into the safety of our own shell."
