This weekend Rowan Blanchard spoke about feminism at New York Fashion Week's Opening Ceremony 'Pageant of the People,' and she caused quite a stir.

Rowan Blanchard joined such stars as Rashida Jones, Jessica Williams, and Whoopi Goldberg to bring a positive political message to New York Fashion Week.

The Opening Ceremony event occurred on Sunday, the 15th anniversary of September 11th, and was designed to prove that there is an important political component to fashion.

The event speakers, including Rowan, discussed the importance of voting, as well as several other important causes in a debate-like format. Rowan noted that voting is important because it so deeply affects kids' futures: "vote for my future," she said.

Rowan Blanchard's speech was about feminism, which is something that Rowan has spoken about in depth in many different venues.

According to Allure, Rowan Blanchard also said that "feminism could be more inclusive if we choose to listen to people instead of talking over people."

Finally, here's a poorly recorded clip the event:
