“[We] will INCLUDE stories unheard and faces unseen,” Rodriguez wrote on Instagram on Monday (Jan. 30). “We will make it our top priority to put women in front of and behind the camera.”

As the award-winning actress gets to work in the effort to make inclusion the norm and not an option, fans can keep another eye out for her first book, I Can and I Will: Tools My Daddy Gave Me, expected to drop under CBS’ sister company Simon & Schuster sometime this year.
