Rowan Blanchard Speaks Out on Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Inequality Essay

Jennifer Lawrence has one more person in her corner regarding Hollywood’s wage inequality – Rowan Blanchard!

The 14-year-old Girl Meets World star recently opened up about the poignant essay Jen wrote.

“I think every female actress knew it, and they all knew that it was happening, but nobody wanted to say anything because they were just like, ‘Okay, you know what, I still got paid; it wasn’t as much, but I still got paid,’” Rowan told EW. “Society was telling them if that if you speak out you’re going to be labeled, like, this feminist crazy person, difficult, difficult to work with – and that, in itself, is very sexist. All these female actresses are literally labeled difficult to work with because, God forbid, they have an opinion.”

Rowan continued, “I’m definitely happy that people are speaking out and people are recognizing that they have the power to change things. But at the same time, it’s frustrating that, immediately, Jennifer Lawrence is labeled as annoying. Like, ‘Oh, she’s complaining. She’s complaining too much.’ It’s difficult, but people have to keep on doing it in order to break these barriers.”
