Men and women believe in equal pay and access to contraceptives, says poll
The majority of Latino women and men agree on a woman’s right to have easy access to contraception and to equality between the sexes, says Latina political scientist Sylvia Manzano.
In a Latino Decisions post today, Manzano said as we move through the election season, “we will continue to hear about Latino values,” adding “representing Latino voters accurately requires knowledge of their opinions.”
Manzano, along with two other Latina political scientists, Celeste Montoya and Christina Bejarano, analyzed the results of the Latino National Survey, the most comprehensive political survey of 8,500 Latinos.
When asked whether women should have easy access to contraception, about 80 percent of foreign-born Latinas, 95 percent of U.S.-born Latinas, 73 percent of foreign-born men and 76 percent of U.S.-born men agreed.
More than 90 percent of all Latino men and women, whether they were immigrants or native-born Hispanics, believed women should get equal pay.
