Feminista y Resistencia: The Latina Experience and How To Build Support and Community

Virtual Summit Gender Equity: Feminista y Resistencia: The Latina Experience and How To Build Support and Community

Latinas still face discrimination in both their professional and personal lives despite the contributions they make to virtually every area of life in the U.S. Two major hurdles in the fight for equity in America are laws restricting the rights of immigrant/undocumented women and the wage gap affecting Latina women at a disproportionate rate. Pervasive sexism in our society has also created a glass ceiling that still persists and makes it difficult for many women to realize their potential.
