Elizabeth Rodriguez Says Working With Women 'Adds A Level Of Pride And Joy'

"You’re not just working with women, you’re doing great work with women."

Working with all women is pretty awesome -- just ask Elizabeth Rodriguez

On Sept. 22, the "Orange Is The New Black" star spoke with HuffPost Live about the show and what it's like working with an all-female cast and crew. The short answer? Pretty freaking awesome. 

"It fills your chest in a way that there are no words to describe when you look around," Rodriguez said. "You’re not just working with women, you’re doing great work with women." 

She explained that "OITNB" is by far the most women she's ever worked with both on-camera and behind the scenes. "It adds a level of pride and joy," she said, adding, "I’m really happy and proud to be a part of something like that."

As you should be, Elizabeth.
