Show off your inner goddess — and support women’s health care — with a Meghan Markle-approved design from jewelry brand Awe Inspired.
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, 100 percent of the proceeds from the brand’s “Woman Power” necklace ($140-$150) – as worn by the Duchess of Sussex at the 2021 VAX Live event – will be donated to Planned Parenthood, as well as proceeds from Awe Inspired’s entire Ruth Bader Ginsburg collection.
“We are proud to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her champion of civil liberties, and all the people she inspired to never stop enduring in the face of adversity,” reads a statement on the brand’s website, adding that it hopes to “continue the fight” with these donations.
It’s a matter close to the Duchess of Sussex’s heart, as she made clear during a recent interview with Gloria Steinem and Jessica Yellin for Vogue.
“We need to work together and not wallow,” she said, adding, “What happens to our bodies is so deeply personal, which can also lead to silence and stigma, even though so many of us are dealing with personal health crises. .”

In addition to Markle’s statement-making necklace, which combines the female Venus symbol with a protesting fist, Awe Inspired’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg collection also includes a pendant featuring the face of the late Supreme Court and feminist icon.
