    Hello Collen,

    I see that in your analysis there is no distinction made for women of color or Spanish-speaking or other secondary speakers of English. I did not attend this breakfast; did you make mention of women of color and immigrant women at all?

      Hi Lee-Val Bassett’s introduction to my presentation highlighted the fact that the wage gap is even greater for these subgroups, and our plan is to highlight this data (along with that from the presentation) on southcoastindicators.org in the not-too-distant future. Thanks for your feedback!
