Yas! These Women Are Changing The World And They’re Finally Being Recognized For It

Marie Claire’s Young Women’s Honors has been taped and now the world waits with bated breath for the show to hit a TV set screen near you. Who better than Gina Rodriguez to host a show all about empowering young women? Rodriguez’s year has been one of success and so much recognition that she just seems like the perfect fit. Here is what we know so far…

Marie Claire’s first-ever Young Women’s Honors has officially taped.


“Our honorees are everything I dreamt of having when I was a young girl,” said Gina Rodriguez, the host of the award show, according to E! News. “Now we get to do that for the next generation. We get to do that ourselves, for any generation, at any point, anything is possible. Especially now during this time we’re living in… This room is so beautiful. This room is so hopeful, this room is so strong, and we are only strong together, so thank you.”

The ever exuberant and positive Gina Rodriguez was the (very excited) host.


“Young Women’s Honors is a global platform that will discover, honor and celebrate women who demonstrate confidence, intelligence and leadership, that will inspire others to follow,” reads the Young Women’s Honors website.

But who better than Rodriguez to host an award show dedicated to recognizing and elevating young women?

No one.

“The Marie Claire Young Women’s Honors is a global platform that will discover, honor and celebrate women who demonstrate confidence, intelligence and leadership that will inspire others to follow,” Rodriguez told Marie Claire. “It’s a true honor to have First Lady Michelle Obama and ‘Let Girls Learn’ featured at this event.”

In addition to the honorees, the event brought out some major stars, including “Orange Is The New Black”‘s Jackie Cruz and Laverne Cox.


Now, we all just have to wait until Dec. 19 to watch the award show on the CW.


“Congratulations. You are all extraordinary,” First Lady Michelle Obama told the honorees via video, according to E! News. “You are brilliant, bold, you are transforming the world around you and in every day you remind us of the boundless promise that lies within every woman and girl on this planet.”
