Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” star Rowan Blanchard is 13 years old, but she understands the importance of intersectional feminism better than most.
In response to a question asked by a tumblr user, Blanchard posted a three-part essay on Instagram on Saturday, explaining her thoughts on the term “white feminism,” according to The Wrap.
“The way a black woman experiences sexism and inequality is different from the way a white woman experiences sexism and inequality,” wrote the actress.
“Likewise with trans-women and Hispanic women.”
Blanchard wrote on how many feminists ignore the experiences of women from different backgrounds, a factor that has been brought up many times on social media as of late.
"This is such an important thing to be discussing," Blanchard wrote.
"I have made a very big point of making sure my personal feminism includes everyone - and educating myself and discussing these topics have really helped.”
Blanchard doesn’t separate issues of “police brutality and rape” from feminism either.
