Psychics are known for their mystical insights, but one particular visit transformed the 19-year-old’s perspective forever. The psychic delivered a revelation: Brown was a feminist, and this was her awakening moment. After the session, the Enola Holmes star turned to the internet, searching, How do I know if I’m a feminist?. The books and articles she encountered only deepened her conviction, Brown revealed in her interview with Glamour. It became crystal clear to her that she identified with the cause of gender equality, advocating for equal opportunities for all.

Since then the actress harnessed her passion through her family-run production company, PCMA. With a specific mission to illuminate the often-overlooked stories of girls and women, PCMA achieved considerable success, notably securing the rights to the Enola Holmes books, leading to a thriving Netflix franchise. In her upcoming Netflix project, Damsel, Brown embodies a dragon-fighting princess, addressing feminist themes. Beyond her entertainment career, as UNICEF’s youngest goodwill ambassador, she advocated for menstrual care and female education.

Portraying a character that resonates with you is a true actor’s privilege. Brown had that opportunity when she brought Eleven to life in Stranger Things and became the brilliant Enola in Enola Holmes. While her career soared, her influence on women grew too. The success of Enola Holmes prompted her to encourage young girls and after the sequel’s triumph, she shared her experience playing two feminist characters.

In a shifting world, women are embracing versatile roles, as seen in Enola Holmes, where the character defied conventions. In Stranger Things, Eleven boldly faced challenging situations and fought for her rights. Brown embraced both these characters and proudly proclaimed her identity as a feminist. She is passionate about women’s rights, especially children’s rights, aiming to protect and educate them.
