Eva Longoria has become somewhat of a spokesperson for women and Latinos everywhere.

In a recent interview with PowerwomenTV.com, the Devious Maids producer spoke on the role of women in society and how it has been defined.

"The role of women, historically, has been socially constructed," Longoria says. "So we have been told what we're supposed to be."

The 38-year-old says that women have been made to believe that they're supposed to be wives, mothers and caretakers of their family. But the good news is we have the power to change these socially constructed ideals.
