Storm Reid, Laura Harrier, Ellie Bamber & More Discuss Gender Equality & Representation in Hollywood

Storm Reid, Laura Harrier and Ellie Bamber look stunning on the first-ever digital cover for Teen Vogue‘s 2018 Young Hollywood issue, which is out now.

The cover shoot also includes Bria Vinaite, Sasha Lane, Margaret Qualley, Letitia Wright and Awkwafina.

Here’s what the young stars had to say…

Storm, on the impact of her role in A Wrinkle in Time: “Representation is everything. If I was younger, if I saw Meg as myself, Meg would empower me and inspire me and make me feel like I could save the world. So to have those characters and to be able to be that for young African-American girls or just young people in general is really empowering.”

Ellie, on gender equality within Hollywood: “The idea of bringing equality not just to entertainment but to every walk of life, I think it’s very important. There should be no segregation. Everyone should be united and everyone should be seen as equals.”

Laura, on what she learned while preparing for her role in Spike Lee’s Black Klansman: “I studied Angela Davis. I got to meet Kathleen Cleaver, and talked to all these incredible women of the Black Panther and Black Power movements. It just struck me how relevant these things are now, unfortunately…. It was a lot more peaceful than we were made to think. Women were a big part of it. It wasn’t just this male-driven thing.”
