Alyssa Milano is no stranger to stardom.
But in the last couple of months, the actress and activist has received attention for being a driver of change — literally, this week, as she chauffeured voters to the polls in Alabama's special Senate election.
Her recent moment began with her response to the sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein: In October, Milano sent atweet that turned the hashtag #MeToo
into a rallying cry against sexual assault and harassment. This month, Milano and the creator of the original Me Too movement back in 2006, Tarana Burke, were recognized among Time magazine's "Silence Breakers" as the person of the year.
Then this past week, Milano — whose success began in the 1980s with her breakout role as Samantha on the sitcom "Who's the Boss?" and spanned decades with parts on hits "Melrose Place" and "Charmed" — was in the thick of another movement: campaigning for a Democrat in crimson-red Alabama.
Determined to increase voter turnout for Democrat Doug Jones in his bid to defeat Republican Roy Moore, the accused child molester whose bid gained national attention, Milano spent Tuesday in Alabama, driving voters to polling stations.
