The Duchess of Sussex went on to explain that her husband is able to set a great example for their son, one-year-old Archie, by being a feminist himself. “I look at our son and what a beautiful example that he gets to grow up with a father who is so comfortable owning that as part of his own self-identification,” she said. “That there’s no shame in being someone who advocates for fundamental human rights for everyone, which of course includes women.”

Steinem also praised Harry, calling him a “nurturing father” and a role model. “Your son will grow up knowing it’s OK to be loving and nurturing,” she shared.
