Gina teamed up with LUNA to raise her voice for pay equality. Check out the video and the essay below!
As a little girl, my father instilled in me an important mantra: “I can and I will.” As Latina woman growing up in a low-income part of Chicago, there were challenges and limitations everywhere. My father’s powerful refrain helped me to push past challenges, ask for more, and create change. It’s this drive that energizes me to take a stand with LUNA to champion women, and demand equality. We are raising awareness for one of the most longstanding inequalities facing women: the gender pay gap. Together, we CAN and WILL champion change.
On average, there is a 20 percent pay gap that women face for doing the same job compared to their male counterparts—a gap that often grows larger for different ethnicities. To me, equal pay isn’t just about a dollar amount. It’s about knowing what you’re worth and a strength in knowing what you deserve. It’s about fairly and equally recognizing hard work and talent, no matter gender, ethnicity or religion. Equal pay is necessary because it tells women that they are valued, they are capable and they will be treated like anyone else doing the exact same job.
You can’t be what you can’t see, which is why I want to be a role model for girls demonstrating for them that they can do it. My hope is that they see a reflection of themselves in me and other female role models, and that they see themselves on TV and movie screens, billboards, and magazines. I want to be part of spreading the knowledge that girls CAN and WILL be CEOs, entrepreneurs, coders, athletes, and hold the lead role on a TV show. I want them to know that they can direct instead of taking direction. The more we show women in these roles, the more we empower girls and women to take action.

Deadline is reporting that Gina Rodriguez is the frontrunner for the Catherine Hardwicke helmed remake of “Miss Bala”.
Catherine Hardwicke is in talks to direct Miss Bala, the remake of the Mexican film that was nominated for Best Foreign Film in 2011. Hardwicke and Sony are hoping to land a star quickly to play the beauty pageant contestant who witnesses the brutality of a drug gang and is dragged into their dangerous business. I’ve heard the studio is heavily courting Gina Rodriguez, among other actresses. Hardwicke has separately been circling The Phantom Tollbooth, which is at sister label TriStar project. If the studio gets a star tof Miss Bala quickly, Hardwicke won’t likely catch the other train. Kevin Misher and Pablo Cruz are producing, Andy Berman is executive producer. Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer is adapting the script by original director Gerard Naranjo and Mauricio Katz.
The Phantom Tollbooth is the 1961 Norton Juster children’s book. It has a script by Michael Vukadinovich and focuses on a bored young boy named Milo who receives a magic tollbooth, drives through it in his toy car and is transported to the Kingdom of Wisdom. There, he goes on an incredible adventure and gets the chance to save a princess. Donald De Line is producing through his De Line Pictures with Ed McDonnell of Maple Shade Films. The scribe wrote the kiddie tales The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto at Fox and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disney. The Twilight director is repped by CAA and Manage-ment.
