The actress does more than just talk about it, she took a trip down to Tijuana, Mexico back in March to visit the migrant shelters for herself.

‘Santi was with me when I went,’ she said. ‘He didn’t go into the shelters, but he’s always with me.’

‘I feel there’s more pressure to raise a good man today in this world and to make sure he understands equality and feminism,’ the Time’s Up co-founder said. ‘But it’s not about telling him, it’s about showing him in his everyday life.’
