About Women’s Rights
By 2060, 27% of women in the U.S. will be Latina
Latinas now represent 8.7% of the total U.S. population, which is 27.9 million.
Latina workers earn 53 cents for every dollar earned by white non-Hispanic men, the largest income gap in the nation. They are more likely to suffer wage theft violations than their male Latino counterparts. To make matters worse, 77 percent of them report sexual assault as being a major workplace issue. In light of these findings, LCLAA launched its Trabajadoras campaign, a wide-reaching education and engagement program that highlights the difficulties faced by Latinas inside and outside of the workplace. Through this campaign, LCLAA looks to empower Latinas to speak out and ensure their rights, both at work and at home.
