Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui Urges Young Women to Use Their Voices

Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui Urges Young Women to Use Their Voices

Lauren Jauregui is opening up about her activism.

The 20-year-old Fifth Harmony member was one of the thousands who participated in the Women’s March on Washington over the weekend.

“It was the most incredible, humbling experience to be in the presence of so many humans who were so willing to come together,” Lauren told Nylon. “When I was there, we were trying to get to the bathroom and then trying to get back into the crowd, and it was absolutely impossible because it was so packed, and there was this woman who was in a wheelchair. We were trying to get up onto the ledge, and she was like, ‘use my wheelchair! Come on!’ She literally let us use her as a stepping stool. It was crazy. Everyone was so helpful, helping each other out.”

Lauren felt compelled to speak out for what she believes in, and urges others to do the same.

“I think that in the entertainment industry particularly, people usually get into this business because they’re trying to just be the distraction for people,” Lauren told the mag. “But for me, I don’t see the power in having a voice, and a voice that so many more people listen to than an average… I don’t feel right having that and not using it for the sake of educating. That’s why I think I was born and given this platform to begin with. I hate attention, I hate all of that kind of shit. But I think God gave me this voice for this purpose—to use it for the sake of uniting people and making sure that everyone knows that it’s okay to use your voice. You can be a young woman, and it’s okay to use your voice. You can be as strong as you want.”

Rowan Blanchard Has Advice For You About Springing Into Action

Rowan Blanchard Has Advice For You About Springing Into Action

Rowan Blanchard is shedding some light on how to stay active in causes that are important to you instead of just being a bystander.

For example, the 15-year-old Girl Meets World star took part in the groundbreaking Women’s March over the weekend.

“I think the majority of people know how to use the internet; they know how to tweet out links to a donation page or how to Instagram about it” Rowan told Teen Vogue. “That’s definitely one of the first steps you can take. From what I understand, activism is such a learning process. You’re constantly rediscovering and reevaluating your personal politics and then you might look at outdated activism you did a year ago. Which is how I feel about a lot of the things I’d done before mid-last year! But I guess that’s a good thing; it shows that you’re progressing into a different direction.”

She continued, “So start engaging in the discourse that you see, start engaging in these conversations. Even if you’re not 100% right, that’s how you learn. Even if you’re on the wrong side of things, or even if you’re engaging it in a way that’s not as inclusive as it should be, I think that’s better than not doing anything at all, or having an attitude that’s like ‘Well, the world’s going to end anyway.’”
