Where white women get paid more than black women, black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s like a very scary space to step into,” the “Jane the Virgin” star said.

“Because I always feel like I fail when I speak about it because I can’t help but feel already so gracious to do what I do and I feel like, culturally, I feel like I was raised

What to Expect for Meredith and DeLuca When Grey's Anatomy Returns
