This Latina Actress Was Asked A Ridiculous Question About Voting And She Fired Back With Perfect Shade

America Ferrera sat down with Gloria Steinem at the opening of the 2016 Makers Conference to talk about social justice and feminism. Makers is all about empowering women and that’s exactly what America did.

America Ferrera recalled a story of a reporter who was really off the mark with his question about the upcoming presidential elections.
