Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Want Girls To Break Gender Stereotypes

On International Women’s Day, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to talk to young women and girls about careers that involve science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). With this, the royal couple is finding ways to encourage women to break gender roles and stereotypes.

According to The Telegraph, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended an event where young women were engaged in activities designed to boost their abilities in STEM. Prince Harry told young girls that they must have “brains the size of a planet” and that they should work on developing interest in apps and the Internet.

Markle spent time helping the girls with their work, and asking about what they were doing. She claimed several times that their projects were cool and that she was very impressed with the girls and their jobs.

It’s amazing to see so much young talent, so much confidence. It’s such a strong program.

The couple spoke with tons of girls and then listened to three star students who’d prepared different speeches on their favorite inspirational women, discussing why it was important to become role models for women and why they must forget about all sorts of harmful stereotypes on gender.
