bitchy | Duchess Meghan will receive Ms. Foundation’s Woman of Vision Award in May

LMAO, the Duchess of Sussex keeps winning awards for being awesome. Fresh from the news that Duchess Meghan’s Archetypes podcast won a Gracie Award, it’s just been announced that Meghan will receive a special award from Ms. Foundation. The awards ceremony is on May 16, in New York. How I would love for the Sussexes to attend the Met Gala on May 1st, then spend time visiting with friends and vacationing in the Hamptons for a few weeks, then attend this event.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Black Voters Matter co-founder LaTosha Brown will receive the Ms. Foundation’s Women of Vision Award in May, the nation’s oldest women’s foundation announced Monday.

The awards will be handed out at the Ms. Foundation’s annual gala on May 16 at New York City’s Ziegfeld Ballroom, part of its 50th anniversary celebration where funds raised will go toward the organization’s equity-centered initiatives.

The foundation will also honor Wanda Irving, co-founder of Dr. Shalon’s Maternal Action Project, and Kimberly Inez McGuire, executive director of URGE, as well as emerging leaders abortion rights activist Olivia Julianna and LGBTQ+ advocate Rebekah Bruesehoff.

“Meghan, LaTosha, Wanda, Kimberly, Olivia, and Rebekah are incredible leaders,” Teresa C. Younger, Ms. Foundation president and CEO, said in a statement. “We are grateful to be able to shine a light on their many accomplishments and tireless work on behalf of gender and racial equity across the country and the world.”

Meghan will receive the award for “her global advocacy to empower and advocate on behalf of women and girls” from Gloria Steinem, Ms. Foundation co-founder. With her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Meghan directs their philanthropy through their Archewell Foundation.

It’s truly so funny that the only time Harry and Meghan go to New York is to pick up awards or make special appearances where they’ve been requested. Remember when the British commentators swore up and down that H&M would turn into paparazzi targets desperate for attention and legitimacy? Oh well! The Sussexes keep winning at life. And literally winning awards.
