Hispanics represent one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. population. Recent census reports estimate that Hispanics comprise 16 percent of the U.S. population. By 2050, it is estimated that nearly one out of every three Americans will be Hispanic. Many researchers have begun earnestly studying their impact on U.S. economy, culture, education, business, and politics. But few studies have focused on Hispanic females and their quiet struggles for self-determination in the United States. This essay explores the experiences of Hispanic women in the U.S. workforce by giving voice to this silent minority.
