Members of the royal family celebrate Meghan Markle as she turns 41

Meghan Markle defended the word “woke” and “feminism” in the latest episode of her “Archetypes” podcast.

In the episode, titled “The Audacity of the Activist,” the Duchess of Sussex spoke about words that become “unnecessarily charged” when it comes to women, giving examples such as “feminism,” which she said is “often treated as taboo as the F-word.”

Markle, 41, added: “Or the word ‘woke.’ I know I’m saying ‘woke.’ I fully realize I am spoon-feeding the clickbait, but here’s why. Because ‘woke,’ by definition, means alert to injustice in society, especially racism.”

She continued: “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?”

Markle’s podcast guest, British actress Jameela Jamil, told her that she had “fought back on behalf” of the royal and defended her against “demonization.”

Jamil, 36, said: “It’s just it’s an unfathomable amount of s*** that you take Meghan, I can’t believe it.

“And I fought back on your behalf years before I’d ever met you because I was so outraged with the twisting of this, very normal, very kind, very civilized woman.

“That demonisation just shows how afraid they are of you.

“And I’m sure maybe you can’t keep this in or whatever, but the treatment of you and, I’m so sorry, you’ve had to withstand, it has re-highlighted for us there is intense unkindness and bigotry and misogyny of our media. I think and I hope and I feel faith that tides are changing, because so many of us are fighting back.”

And Meghan replied: “Thank you for fighting back.”

Markle also explained how female activists are often looked at with irritation.

Meghan said: “I started to notice this almost default eye roll when someone would mention a woman fighting for a cause. ‘Why can’t she just sit down and’. you know the rest. The unspoken annoyance that seemed to swirl around women in activism was astounding to me.”
