70 političarki podržalo Meghan: Koristit ćemo sva sredstva da vas zaštitimo od napada

Meghan Markle dobila je pismo podrške od 70 žena, članica parlamenta ili samo političarki u Ujedinjenom Kraljevstvu. U pismu su naglasile da daju podršku vojvotkinji od Sussexa, te da osuđuju lažne tabloidne napise o njoj.

-Kao žene, članice parlamenta, različitog političkog backgrounda, stojimo uz vas, jer sve što vam se dešava ne može proći bez odgovora – kažu one.

U otvorenom pismu, koje je zastupnica Holly Lynch objavila na Twitteru, akcenat se stavlja na neukusne tekstove koji nisu ništa drugo nego invazija na privatnost jedne žene. Pismo je stiglo kao odgovor na dokumentarac o južnoafričkoj turneji Meghan i princa Harryja, u kojem je Meghan otvoreno Tomu Bradbyju, autoru ITV-a otkrila kako je bila svjesna da uloga vojvotkinje i sve što prati ulazak obične djevojke u kraljevsku kuću, neće biti lagana, ali da je ipak mislila da će pisanje o njoj biti pošteno. Njena iskrenost u vezi s borbom s tabloidima navela je mnoge pojedince da joj izraze podršku, a činjenica da pismo potpisuje više od 70 političarki iz Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva pokazuje da vojvotkinja uistinu ima ogromnu podršku, te da vladini službenici ozbiljno shvaćaju ono što govori.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.

“On Thursday we convened a meeting of minds – a group of women ranging from a legendary anti-apartheid activist, female parliamentarians, professors, educators and policy makers to discuss the rights of women in South Africa. In the lead up to this tour it weighed heavily on my heart to see the countless violations against women, and I wanted to spend my time on the ground learning about the situation at hand. One of the guests, Sophia Williams-De Bruyn was just 18 years old when in 1956 she led 20,000 women to march on the Union Buildings in Pretoria in protest of apartheid pass laws. She is the last living leader of the march, and today, a symbol of those who fight for fundamental human rights – For her it is simple – she fights for what is right. Issues of gender inequality affect women throughout the world, independent of race, color, creed, or socioeconomic background. In the last week I’ve met with women from all walks of life – religious leaders such as the first female rabbi in Capetown, grassroots leaders in Nyanga at Mbokodo, community activists, parliamentarians, and so many more. In sitting down with these forward thinkers, it was abundantly clear – it is not enough to simply hope for a better future; the only way forward is “hope in action.” I’m eager to spend the next few days in South Africa continuing to learn, listen and absorb the resilience and optimism I’ve felt here.“ -Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex

Pismo političarki prenosimo u cjelosti:

“Kao zastupnice izražavamo solidarnost s vama, čvrsto ubijeđene da su često u našim nacionalnim novinama ispisane neukusne i priče pogrešne prirode vezane za ​​vaš lik i vašu porodicu. Ponekad su priče i naslovi predstavljali invaziju na vašu privatnost te za cilj imale nametanje stavova o vašem liku, koliko možemo vidjeti, bez ikakvog valjanog razloga. Još više osuđujemo kolonijalni i zastarjeli ton u njima. Kao žene zastupnice u Parlamentu svih pozicija, stojimo uz vas, jer sve što vam se dešava ne može proći bez odgovora.Iako naše pozicije u javnom životu nisu iste, dijelimo razumijevanje za zlostavljanje i zastrašivanje koje se danas tako često koristi kao sredstvo da se žene u javnoj službi odvrate od obavljanja vrlo važnog posla.Imajući to u vidu, očekujemo da će nacionalni mediji imati integritet da znaju razlučiti kada je priča od nacionalnog interesa, a kada pak ima za cilj srušiti ženu bez ikakvog razloga. Budite uvjereni da smo solidarni u vezi s tim. Koristit ćemo sredstva koja su nam na raspolaganju kako bismo osigurali da mediji prihvate vaše pravo na privatnost i pokažu poštovanje te da njihove priče odražavaju istinu”.
