The actress shared photos and videos from the event and wrote a lengthy note in which she talked about voting rights. She said, “While I don’t vote in this country – my husband can and someday, my daughter will.” In the note, she also talks about how in the early days the world weakened the power of women, but now women are in a place where they can come together and work collectively to “right” wrong”. In her note, she also thanked the WLF (World Leaders Forum) and Secretary Hillary Clinton, a founding member of the organization, for inviting and including her in these important conversations. .
She began her note with the words of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, “Women belong in all places where decisions need to be made. Women should not be the exception.” She added, “From the very beginning, the world has weakened the power of women. We have been shunned and silenced, but thanks to the fearlessness and perseverance of so many selfless women, today we’re in a place where we can come together and work collectively to correct mistakes This was the crux of the conversation I had the honor to moderate with @vp, Kamala Harris at the assembly Women Leaders Forum meeting in Washington DC last night.”
She continued, “Over the past two years, humanity has experienced some of the greatest challenges we will see in our lifetime. We are faced with an urgent need for stability and progress, and for with America, starting with the polls on Nov. 8. Everyone has a role to play in getting there… being part of the citizenship process and exercising the right to vote, especially the women because we need to be actively involved in making sure our rights are taken care of.”
Speaking of voting rights, Priyanka wrote, “While I don’t vote in this country – my husband can and someday, my daughter will. My conversation with VP Harris revolved around the most pressing issues, which to address it, a clear vision and planning is required.” She concluded the note by writing, “Thanks to the WLF and Secretary Hillary Clinton, the founding force in establishing this organization, and brought me into these important conversations, among an incredible collection of successful women.”
