Today is Latina Equal Pay Day, which marks how far into the year a Latina must work to make the same amount as a white male counterpart. We’re at 11 months – 56.5¢ to $1. Here’s the important thing to remember: acknowledging these things is not to lessen anyone else’s cause. It’s not a time for, “yeah, but white people have problems, too!” I’ve seen that a lot today. Everybody check yourselves. Today, we highlight THIS cause and give it the attention it deserves. Here’s the other thing: I’m a white female, and while I feel the discrimination of being a woman, I am privileged AF. I acknowledge it every day and never forget it. It’s okay to admit that parts of your life are better than others. The challenge is to do all you can to change that. #latinaequalpay
