Looks like a 13 year old is schooling us all on feminism…again.
Rowan Blanchard, the star of Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World, received well-deserved praised on her essay on intersectional feminism back in August, and now the actress has a few wise words about all those “Girl Squads” running around Hollywood.
*Cough* Taylor Swift *Cough*
In a new interview with Just Jared Jr, Blanchard made it clear why you won’t be seeing her in “Bad Blood Part II” or any other squads.
“Sisterhood is something so valid and important when you are growing up that I literally think the essence of it should be taught in schools,” she said. “But, the ‘squads’ we see in the media are very polarizing. Feminism and friendship are supposed to be inclusive, and most of these ‘squads’ are strictly exclusive.”
Rowan said the “squads” that are portrayed in the media make feminism appear one dimensional. “It can be frustrating when the media and the celebrities involved in it make feminism and ‘squads’ feel like this very happy, exclusive, perfect thing,” she said. “There’s so much more than that. ‘Squad goals’ can polarize anyone who is not white, thin, tall and always happy.”
Can we all just sit in a room and listen to this 13 year old speak? Rowan is brilliant.
