The Presence of Hispanic women in American society

Great article:

According to the U.S. Census of 2000, Hispanic women represented almost 16 million (11%) of a total female population of 139 million that year.

Today, Mexican American women are the most significant Latina population in the country by far, numbering 10 million or 63% of all Latinas.

The next largest group to be identified by a single origin were the Puerto Rican women, who represented 1.6 million.

Cuban women formed the third largest single group at 713,000 of Latinas.

The 2010 census will increase these numbers and the important presence of Hispanic women in our American society.
