Meghan Markle To Moderate The 19th*'s Virtual Summit Next Week

Meghan Markle has lined up her next event appearance at the virtual The 19th* Summit.

The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex will be acting as the moderator for the summit, which will mark the centennial of women’s right to vote with a series of live-streamed conversations between prominent women in politics, civics, journalism, and the arts.

The 19th* is named in honor of the amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The asterisk in the organization’s name serves as a visible reminder of the 19th amendment’s unfinished business.

“The 19th*’s commitment to reporting and storytelling that lifts up those who are too often underrepresented in the media has never been more important,” Meghan shared in a statement. “I’m looking forward to asking the cofounder what it means to build a media outlet with gender equity, diversity and community at its core.”

CEO Emily Ramshaw also explained that Meghan was the one to reach out to them to be part o the summit.

“She told us that our vision for The 19th*—building a truly diverse and representative newsroom that covers women with nuance—spoke to her immediately,” she shared.

The 19th*’s virtual summit will take place on August 14.

Earlier this week, Meghan scored a big victory in her case against The Daily Mail. See what it was…
