Here's a PSA for you: everyone needs to be paying more attention to Gina Rodriguez. While the Jane the Virgin actress has the talent of charming our television sets week after week, she also possesses something equally as powerful: the desire to make change.
Yes, she's the star of a refreshingly diverse television show that doesn't use Latinx stereotypes, but did you know she's also directed an episode of Jane, a feat not many women, let alone women of color, can say they have on their résumés? Her social media accounts alone will inspire you to pick up a sign, not to mention her decision to wear a Time's Up pin to the SAG Awards in support of the women's movement that aims to end gender discrimination and mistreatment. The 33-year-old is subtly yet effectively using her platform for the better good of women everywhere. But it's Rodriguez's latest role in the sci-fi thriller Annihilation that really demonstrates just how much change the actress is willing to partake in.RelatedGina Rodriguez Trains Hard and Eats Clean - but Balance Is the Key to Her Success

At a time of massive cultural shifts in an industry that is not considered the most female-forward, movie portrayals of women as problem solvers, warriors, and complex, independent individuals have never felt more relevant. For an antidote to the doting female sidekick trope, look no further than sci-fi, fantasy, action, and adventure, where strong female protagonists and empowering themes dominate on both sides of the camera.
To celebrate the latest addition to the canon - Disney's upcoming take on the classic novel A Wrinkle in Time - we've rounded up the reasons female-centered movies like this make us feel a little bit more awesome by the time the credits roll. If you need any further incentive to go see the new film in theaters on March 9, consider that it's directed by Ava DuVernay, it's written by Jennifer Lee, and the female-led cast includes Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, and someone you may have heard of named Oprah Winfrey!
Yes, fam, the eighth season of Game of Thrones is coming, and though the actual season won't be on your TV until 2019, you can see Jon Snow, aka Kit Harington, filming scenes for the epic final season. Harington is in Croatia, meaning he's still chilling in King's Landing after his roll in the hay/boat with Daenerys and their ill-fated "negotiation" with Cersei. These are some of the first pictures, and here is one other obvious thing: Jon Snow is still alive! Hey, that means something when we once spent a whole year between seasons wondering this very thing. The King in the North clearly still has business in the seat of the crown, but we're wondering exactly what he's doing at the Red Keep. Harington also managed to have a break while filming in the old town of Dubrovnik, puffing on a cigarette and chugging between scenes. Kings! They're just like us.
This February, we're facing forward and shining the spotlight on 18 incredible black women making history. In this series of powerful profiles, POPSUGAR aims to elevate the voices and impact of these women - among them artists, politicians, musicians, activists, entrepreneurs, and designers - as well as the authors chosen to tell their stories here. While the breadth of their passions and gifts are diverse, each of these remarkable people prove the enduring power of black women to make change, shape our culture, and better our world.
Join Sen. Kamala Harris - one of the very 18 women we're recognizing this month - as she introduces this project and reflects on the lasting legacy of black women in history.

When it comes to a couple's most private moments, a proposal is usually right up there as one of the most intimate - especially for members of the British royal family. There can be no big public declarations, no sky-writing, no fanfare, no "Will you marry me?" drizzled on a restaurant dessert plate in chocolate sauce.
So how exactly do these historic milestones go down? One thing's for sure: there has never been one particular way to pop the question. These moments have been rain-lashed, sun-baked, or with a backdrop of falling snow. Some have scaled the heights of romance, and others have been driven purely by duty. One royal bride-to-be even accepted with the words, "Yeah, OK."
Take a look at the romantics, realists, and rebels behind royal proposals from throughout the years.
One day, when it's time for Prince George to do his duty and accede to the throne, he will become the seventh British king with this traditional royal name - or will he? His grandfather Prince Charles could potentially use the name when his own time comes and take the title before his grandson.
When a new monarch becomes king or queen, he or she can decide whether to keep their given name or choose a regnal name instead. A regnal name is one different from the one they were christened with and that identifies the monarch during their reign. It's pretty rare: in fact, it's only happened three times before in British history - however, all three instances were from the last 200 years. Queen Victoria was actually christened Alexandrina, but she had always preferred her middle name Victoria, so when she took to the throne, she did so with her preferred title.
Victoria's eldest son was named after his father, Prince Albert, but there had always been friction between Victoria and her firstborn, and she later blamed him for the death of her beloved husband who died two weeks after a showdown with the young prince over his decadent lifestyle. It's therefore thought that when the young Prince Albert acceded to the throne, this is why he discarded the name he'd inherited from his father and chose one...

It's the news that royal fans have been waiting 392 days to hear: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged! Just over a year after their relationship became public in October 2016, the office of Harry's father, Prince Charles, made the announcement. Behind the simple statement of "His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle" lies a long list of to-dos that needed to be ticked off before the news was made official.RelatedWhy Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Engagement Is a Historic Moment For the Royals Meeting the Parents
In order to get to the point where an engagement was possible, the couple needed to rack up a few milestones so that everything could be deemed "proper." One of the most important was meeting each other's families. It's likely that Harry met Meghan's mother, Doria, during one of his visits to stay with Meghan in Toronto, while for Meghan it was about meeting Harry's brother, William, his father, Prince Charles, and his grandmother the queen. Meghan revealed in their engagement interview that she has spent lots of time with William and Kate over the past 18 months and accompanied Harry to meet up with Prince Charles a handful of times as well. It was reported that she then

The second season of Netflix's hit series The Crown has shed lots of light on Queen Elizabeth II's hapless younger sister, Princess Margaret. From her dramatic love life and nude photo scandal to her penchant for drinking and smoking, it's been made abundantly clear what most royal family aficionados knew all along: Margaret was never meant to blend in. She was always going to stand out.
Margaret was everything you'd expect a spare heir to be; much like Prince Harry and Princess Charlotte after her, she was irresistibly charming, attention-seeking, extroverted, and much more rebellious than her older sister - after all, if you don't bear the direct responsibility of one day taking the throne, you have less pressure put on you to be perfect. Margaret was only 22 when her sister became queen, and while her duties mostly consisted of representing the family on royal tours of Jamaica, Japan, Australia, and the US, she also had a vested interest in welfare charities, music, and the ballet.RelatedDid Antony Armstrong-Jones Cheat on Princess Margaret? Here Are the Facts
After failed engagements, one divorce, two children, and a handful of extramarital affairs, Princess Margaret's royal reputation wasn't one to be desired. Throughout her later life, her health began to severely decline and the glamorous jet-set lifestyle she was known for...
After officially announcing their engagement on Monday morning, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a celebratory appearance at Kensington Palace. Harry and Meghan definitely had that newly engaged glow as they held hands and Meghan showed off her stunning engagement ring. In addition to their outing being extra adorable, it instantly reminded us of when Prince William and Kate Middleton stepped out to celebrate their engagement at St. James's Palace back in November 2010.
While there were many similarities in the way both couples gazed lovingly into each other's eyes and held onto their other halves' arms, there were also a few differences. For starters, Meghan and Harry chose to have their engagement photocall outside at the Sunken Garden and Will and Kate had theirs inside at St. James's Palace. Kate also wore a blue wrap dress for the occasion, while Meghan opted for a white trench coat. And then there are the rings. Kate's engagement ring includes a 12-carat sapphire that once belonged to Princess Diana. Meghan's ring, on the other hand, features a center-stone diamond from Botswana and two smaller diamonds from Harry's personal collection, which was given to him by Diana.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have had a fairy-tale romance since meeting as students over a decade ago, but they've had some challenges along the way. They briefly split in 2007 and moved around the UK as his job changed. Throughout it all, royal fans have been absolutely intrigued by the story of how a sporty girl from the small village of Bucklebury captured the heart of the heir to the British throne. There is something special about Will and Kate's romance, which of course led to a spectacular 2011 wedding, a son named George, a daughter named Charlotte, and now a third baby on the way. Take a look back at Will and Kate's journey together.RelatedThe Best Pictures of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2017 - So Far!
Now that Meghan Markle is about to join the royal family, she's knee-deep in a lot of new etiquette rules - literally. No amount of binge-watching The Crown is going to prepare her for how to meet, greet, and show respect to members of her new extended family, which includes the age-old and slightly confusing curtsy.Female members of the family are given lower rank than male members, and until recently, wives of the queen's sons were given higher rank than her daughters and granddaughters.
There's no law that enforces a curtsy, and just a few years ago, Queen Elizabeth II herself admitted that she doesn't expect to be curtsyed to by the women she meets in public. But it is considered a sign of great respect, which is why it's remained such a tradition, whether the family is at a state function, official event, or celebrating Christmas in Sandringham.
Female members of the family are given lower rank than male members, and until recently, wives of the queen's sons were given higher rank than her daughters and granddaughters. However, now "blood princesses" like Anne, Beatrice, Eugenie, Alexandra, and even 3-year-old Charlotte are given precedence over women who have married into the royal family, like Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Kate Middleton, and soon, Meghan Markle.RelatedHow Everyone From the Queen to the Corgis Warmly Accepted Meghan Markle Into...
