Gina Rodriguez, Sonequa Martin-Green & More Women in TV Emphasize Jobs as Time's Up Next Step!

Gina Rodriguez shares a laugh while speaking at CBS’ 2018 The EYEspeak Summit held at the Pacific Design Center on Wednesday (March 14) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 33-year-old Jane the Virgin star was joined by her co-star Diane Guerrero, Star Trek: Discovery‘s Sonequa Martin-Green and Wilson Cruz, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Gabrielle Ruiz and Aline Brosh McKenna, NCISMaria Bello, former Greys Anatomy star Sara Ramirez and transgender activist Ashlee Marie Preston.

“For so long I’ve seen the women that came before me fighting for the one seat at the table, and what happens when you fight for the one seat at the table is that you, instinctually, push the people aside because that one seat is important to you — that one seat is everything you have, everything you’ve been fighting for,” Jane expressed (via Variety). “That is a cultural norm that we should erase.”

The key next step in the Time’s Up movement is to create jobs, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend showrunner Aline said: “There’s so much solidarity in being together but we need to offer each other economic opportunities. Hashtags, tweeting, that’s all great, but jobs — that’s what we need,” Aline continued. “You have to hire women and promote women and let them fail and protect them. I wish more women had done that for me and I’m very determined to do that for more women.”

FYI: Sonequa is wearing a Dylanlex ring and earrings. Diane is wearing a Cos dress, Malone Souliers heels, and a Pierre Hardy clutch.
