Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard encourages teens to speak up

Posted on

Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard is among the many actresses who have started speaking out about gender inequality in Hollywood — but at 14, she is likely the youngest among them.

After penning an essay about intersectional feminism, the reaction to which she says has been “humbling,” Rowan has continued to speak out about women’s issues, and she hopes to inspire other young people to find their voice and express their opinions as well.

“I feel like we live in a world that, often, will kind of try and shut teenagers up, or kind of put them aside,” Rowan says. “I feel like my thoughts and my opinions have always been very open, and they’ve always been very allowed, and I definitely want to encourage other teens to do the same and form their own opinions — even if they are the ones I disagree with.”
