Rowan Blanchard knows how to make a powerful speech. The starlet had the honor of speaking at the Women's March in Los Angeles, and Corey Fogelmanis, her Girl Meets World co-star, showed up to support the cause and his bestie's inspiring moment. While delivering her message, the actress opened up about importance of feminism that represents different identities, which is also known as intersectionality.
"[The members of my generation] are so actively engaged in this conversation surrounding intersectionality and what it actually means that we are willing to risk our lives for it," she said, before ending her speech with a plea for her fellow her fellow young people.
"In order to make these changes, we must be aware and constantly understand our privileges...This is actively working to undo any biases in our minds, because it should not be up to those communities to explain it to us. We need to try harder to educate ourselves. We must admit that our singular experiences do not account for anyone else's. We must," she continued.
Wow, what a statement! Her GMW co-star Corey tweeted his own dispatches from the march, saying it was an "honor" to walk among the 750,000 other attendees at the Los Angeles event.
The actor sent out his love to the whole community as well, and said the city was "on top of the world."
After the event, Rowan's speech was uploaded on YouTube under her co-star August Maturo's account. You can hear Auggie's mom actively cheering her on in the video!
Maha Maturo tweeted after the march, "Other than the day my children were born, this was the best day of my life."
Even though GMW has sadly ended, it's so wonderful to see that the cast's bond has lived on. They're still like a family, on-screen and off-screen — and they're so proud to see Rowan give such a powerful message about feminism, activism, and intersectionality.
