Gina Rodriguez wants to honor young women who are doing big things.
The “Jane the Virgin” actress will produce and host Marie Claire Young Women’s Honors, a televised award ceremony intended to spotlight the accomplishments of diverse women who are making a difference in the world.

Hispanic Heritage Month Is Here, And We’re Ready To Celebrate
Hispanic Heritage Month is upon us, and that means it’s time to celebrate and honor the many contributions Hispanics have made to the United States.

Back in 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson decreed that “National Hispanic Heritage Week” would begin on Sept. 15, a date that coincides with the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile also celebrate their Independence Days soon after, on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
