This report is an evaluation of where Hispanic American women rank in the areas of education, employment, compensation, health, and politics. For Hispanics, both men and women, education is vitally important, and this importance is underscored by data that show that Hispanics overall lack the ability to cope economically. High dropout rates and low college graduation rates characterize the Hispanic American population. Latinas are at additional risk because of sex discrimination in access to quality education. This report explores the challenges facing Latinas in the context of the National Education Goals of 1990. Employment patterns of Latinas show that they have traditionally been employed in female-dominated occupations that are among the lowest paid. Despite increases in their employment, they remain at the bottom rungs of the labor force. They do not receive equal pay, as is typical of occupations dominated by other women or people of color. Hispanic American women also have health problems that do not receive the attention they deserve. The report points to the need for restructured schools that have the capacity to meet the educational needs of Latinas while preparing them for the workplace of the future, affordable health care sensitive to a population that speaks two languages, and equitable compensation systems. The importance of political empowerment to move toward these goals is also highlighted. (Contains 6 tables and 207 endnotes.) (Sld)
