Rowan Blanchard is definitely one of the bright young voices to watch, and when she was asked to give her opinion on white feminism and inclusivity, she gave a pretty amazing answer.
Back in June, 13-year-old Rowan spoke about gender equality at the UN Women U.S National Committee Annual Conference, and now she’s taken to Instagram to share some insight with her 2.4 million followers.
