Rowan Blanchard and Amandla Stenberg give us so much inspiration as they appear on the “The New Progressives” cover of Interview magazine.
The 14-year-old Girl Meets World star and 17-year-old Hunger Games alum opened up to the glossy about the social causes most important to them. Check it:
Rowan on being inclusive: “Part of the reason is because I couldn’t sit with the cool girls. I’m not even kidding. In middle school there was literally a spot for the cool kids to sit. You could only sit there if you were cool, and I wasn’t. So I would go read Hugo Cabret under the slides. All my friends were literary characters. So that’s so important to me, that a girl on Instagram doesn’t see a group of girls and feel intimidated. No girl should feel scared to be friends with other females. I was. I lived in fear of other girls. I remember saying, in seventh or eighth grade, “I only hang out with boys, because girls are really scary and mean.” Because of this whole image of perfection in friends groups, I was really scared that other girls hated me, that I wasn’t pretty enough or cool enough or I didn’t have enough Instagram followers or whatever. But finding female friendship was such a monumental point in my life. And I never want somebody to feel like they have to re-evaluate them- selves to join my friends or to join any friend-group.”
Amandla on the intersectionality of gay rights and feminism: “I oftentimes receive the question, ‘What do you think is the most important social issue to focus on?’ Or, ‘What’s the most important component of identity? Is it gay rights or race or feminism?’ And I’m like, ‘Well, they’re all intertwined. It’s all one conversation at the end of the day. You can’t just pick one.’ I mean, people experience all kinds of prejudice because of all different parts of themselves. And that doesn’t make one part more important than the other. We live in a society that does not openly accept every kind of human being. And so the result is when you are yourself and someone who’s marginalized, it becomes a revolutionary act—just being comfortable in your own body and being comfort- able speaking, sharing your ideas. It’s really amazing and also, like, kind of sad. [laughs] I hope one day it’s not revolutionary just to be yourself, but I think that the work that’s being done around identity and personhood is so important.”
