From Who's the Boss actress to #MeToo movement activist, Alyssa Milano is using her celebrity status for good. We've known her since she was a child star and watched her blossom into a beauty. Talented and tenacious, Milano is making waves with her work with the #MeToo movement while she still acts and entertains. She's a mom of two and a devoted spouse to her talent agent husband, and gives her all to her family, fans, and fellow #MeToo fighters. Here's more to know about Milano…
She's the Boss
The mid-'80s was the era of sitcom overload, with Who's the Boss being one of the decade's standouts. The popular show ran from '84 – '92 and a young Milano played the daughter of Tony Danza's iconic character. Fans couldn't get enough of the unconventional living arrangement and the chemistry among the cast. We saw Milano grow up right before our eyes and knew her time in the spotlight wouldn't end when the show wrapped.
Charmed, I'm Sure
The late '90s brought us Charmed, a show about sisters who find out they're witches. Alongside actresses Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs, Milano combined spells and sex appeal to show off a new side of her acting abilities. The show was a hit among the teen and twenty-something crowd, along with those who followed Milano since her days on Who's the Boss. Along with TV, Milano has appeared in a number of films including Little Italy, Wisegal, Poison Ivy II, and Hall Pass.
Milano and #MeToo
If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write 'me too' as a reply to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/k2oeCiUf9n

With a single tweet, Milano's world was turned upside-down. Now at the forefront of the #MeToo movement, Milano along with fellow celebrities and other activists are calling for change. Sexual harassment and assault must come to an end and Milano made sure her message became a movement. There's so much more work to do, but with people like Milano making a difference, "me too" won't be uttered by future generations.

The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.
Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.
A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.
Using a Black dialect isn't a meme—it's cultural appropriation.
As Black Lives Matter protests have rightfully taken the world by storm over the past couple of months, we're long overdue for thorough evaluations of just how often aspects of Black heritage have been co-opted by white audiences.
It should be obvious that much of fashion and music as we know it today was invented by Black people. We (hopefully) all know by now that we can no longer accept Blackface and use of the n-word by non-Black people as the norm—and Internet users have tried "canceling" offenders in the public eye, with varying degrees of success.
