Meet the 21st Century American Latina [PERSPECTIVE]

Happy volunteers standing with their hands together against the sky
Today’s Latina has undergone a major transformation. She’s doesn’t emulate her mother or grandmother (or even her cool tía). Instead, today’s millennial Latinas are embracing a generational, political and cultural shift that is changing the way they see themselves and the world around them. They are not conforming to cultural customs and gender roles as strictly as they once did, and they look to their Latino heritage to enhance their lives. Being Latino is viewed as an asset at home and at work.

The evolving beliefs and behaviors of Latinas were  captured in a recent study by People en Español in which 989 Latinas were surveyed, along with 506 non-Hispanic women, from the ages of 18 to 64. The study compared Latinas to their non-Hispanic counterparts in terms of the importance of tradition, motherhood, bilingualism, family, and work, as well as the struggles they face in their daily lives.
