The gender pay gap is more than just a statistic – it affects real women and real families. The gender pay gap causes real damages and perpetuates income inequality for women of color. Latinas would be making $26,095 more on average each year if there were no gender pay gap. This adds up to 3.7 year's worth of food for their families, approximately 12,342 more gallons of gas, or 27 more months of rent each year.  This amount of money could allow a Latina and her family to rise above the poverty line or jump from one socioeconomic tier to another.
