Meghan Markle appeals for paid parental leave in letter to Congress

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle supported the idea of paid parental leave in America by sharing an open letter highlighting its importance.

Meghan Markle stressed on the need for parental leaves especially during the pandemic.

In the letter, Markle states, “Because you and your congressional colleagues have a role in shaping family outcomes for generations to come, that’s why I’m writing to you at this deeply important time — as a mom — to advocate for paid leave.”

Markle added, "Over the past 20 months, the pandemic has exposed long-existing fault lines in our communities. At an alarming rate, millions of women dropped out of the workforce, staying home with their kids as schools and daycares were closed, and looking after loved ones full-time. The working mom or parent is facing the conflict of being present or being paid. The sacrifice of either comes at a great cost.”

Meghan Markle shares 2 kids from Prince Harry Lilibet and Archie.
