Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

NEW Zealand’s prime min­is­ter has praised Duchess of Sus­sex Meghan Markle for her work pro­mot­ing women’s rights dur­ing her visit.

Jacinda Ardern, who had a baby in June and re­turned to work after six weeks, said: “I think it’s won­der­ful to have a woman in her po­si­tion to talk so strongly about is­sues of women’s rep­re­sen­ta­tion and em­pow­er­ment.

“Hav­ing role mod­els like her­self, stand­ing up and mak­ing state­ments around fair­ness and equal­ity, I think is re­ally pow­er­ful.”
