About Breast Cancer
Not only do Hispanic/Latina women have lower utilization of screening mammography, but many also delay following up on abnormal screening tests. The resulting delay in the treatment of breast cancer in Hispanic/Latina women affects the prognosis. With time, tumors become larger and are more likely to spread to other areas of the body, requiring more extensive treatment and making them more difficult to eradicate.
Rita Moreno is a Puerto Rican performer whose career began at age 11 dubbing Spanish language versions of films in the United States. She made her Broadway debut just before turning 14 and went on to star in numerous films and television shows, despite having to fight the stereotypes that followed Hispanic and Latina talent.
Some 10.7 million low-income households paid more than half their income in rent in 2019, and only 1 in 4 households eligible for rental assistance receive it due to funding limitations. Eviction moratoriums have enabled some families who can’t pay their rent to stay in their housing, but the moratoriums will eventually end and back-rent payments will come due, leaving families who are barely scraping by at high risk of losing their housing.
Women with any type of diabetes may have a higher risk of needing a cesarean delivery if they have high blood sugar during pregnancy. Additionally, the baby may have an increased risk for being too large at birth and being overweight and having Type 2 diabetes in the future. Say researchers want to learn about survival 5 years after a breast cancer diagnosis. They must collect data on women diagnosed this year and then wait 5 years to collect the data on 5-year survival.
Concise enough to be a reference guide, yet meaty enough I coudln’t put it down, Sylvia Mendoza’s choice of Latina women and the material she selects to highlight for each, make a compelling read. From Malinche to Selena, we learn who and what drove the lives, passions and successes of these amazing, but often overlooked women. From trailblazers to entertainers, doctors to activists and leaders, the glimpses into their lives educate and inspire.
Additional estimates, specifically those for racial, ethnic and nativity groups in the Great Recession, are based on the analysis of CPS data by Pew Research Center. These estimates are adjusted to account for the effects of annual revisions to the CPS. All estimates http://www.florian-rische.de/2019/11/28/four-reasons-people-switch-from-the-competitor-to-women-of-panama/ are nonseasonally adjusted because seasonal adjustment factors are not available for many of the demographic groups included in this report. The COVID-19 recession, barely three months old, has had a sharp and severe impact on the employment of American workers.
You may have seen her most recently in the remake of the television series One Day at a Time. She is the first Latina woman and one of few performers to hold an EGOT title, having obtained Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards. Maria Isa is a local Twin Cities’ singer, songwriter, actor, rapper, activist and cohost of the podcast Latina Theory.
- As of 2013, Latinas owned about 1 out of every 10 women-owned businesses.
- Latina women experience unintended pregnancy at twice the rate experienced by white women.
- Latina women represented 49 percent of all Latinos who matriculated into medical school in 2004.
- From 1980 to 2004, the number of Latina medical school graduates per year jumped from 93 to 485.
However, diabetes of any type — Type 1, Type 2, or gestational — can negatively affect the health of a woman and her baby during pregnancy. Women with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with high blood sugar at the time of conception have an increased risk of birth defects, stillbirth and preterm birth.
For example, under the ACA, around 4.9 million Latinas are receiving expanded preventive service coverage, and an estimated 4.6 million Latinas will gain access to affordable or subsidized health insurance, which may help close some of the health disparities Latina women face. This has disastrous consequences for the Latino community by denying them monetary resources that would ultimately benefit them. The National Women’s Law Center estimates that the gender wage gap amounts to a loss of $26,095 a year. That amount can mean a lot to a working family attempting to pay its bills, put food on the table, and provide for their children.
We know what it will take to reduce hardship during the pandemic and the long recovery that lies ahead. A flexible emergency fund of at least $10 billion could help families left out of other relief measures meet their basic needs. In addition, funds for housing assistance would help families and individuals with high housing burdens avoid evictions, and a 15 percent increase in the monthly SNAP benefit would reduce food insecurity, especially among households with the most limited incomes. Continued expansions of unemployment insurance would help families to afford the basics until they are able to return to work. Housing consumes such a large share of low-income households’ budgets that even before the pandemic, they sometimes had to forgo food, medicine, or other necessities to keep a roof over their heads.
NWLC also estimates that over the course of a 40-year career, with the current wage gap, the average Latina would lose over a million dollars in wages. Wage gaps also harm the individuality of working Latinas and limit their social and economic mobility. Rooted in the coronavirus outbreak, job losses in the latest recession have been concentrated in sectors in which social distancing of workers is difficult or the option to telework is lacking. Just three sectors – leisure and hospitality, education and health services, and retail trade – accounted for 59% of the total loss in nonfarm jobs from February to May. These sectors also accounted for 47% of jobs held by women in February, compared with 28% for men, exposing women to a higher risk of unemployment in recent months.
A key contributing factor is that nearly half of young adult workers (48%) were employed in higher-risk industries in February, compared with 24% of workers overall. Job losses for older workers were also sizable, ranging from 9% to 13%, but less severe than for young adults. The pattern of job losses by age in the COVID-19 recession is generally consistent with the pattern in the Great Recession and in previous recessions. In a Pew Research Center survey conducted April 29-May 5 young adults ages 18 to 29 were also more likely than older Americans to say that they have lost a job or taken a pay cut because of the coronavirus outbreak.
