“After just seeing @salmahayek ‘s new film ‘The Prophet’ and crying endless happy tears in the theater. One of my favorites EVER because it is so magical and mesmerizing and it reminds you that no matter how dark the world may seem around us, there is still plenty of light. Huge congrats @salmahayek ?? Go see Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet!!!!” Rowan posted on Instagram afterwards.

“Oh my goodness! I am beyond excited. It’s such an honor,” Rowan exclusively told JJJ about her involvement. “I can’t even believe it’s happening. I’m speaking about gender inequality in youth, which is something that is so incredibly important to me.”
Rowan added about speaking on gender equality in youth, “Gender inequality starts literally from the second you can talk. I have watched girls be told they can’t become doctors or professors and boys be called weak and girlish if they show any emotion. I want to change that. There should be no limitations because of your gender.”
