ABSTRACT
This article compares how the attitudes of Hispanic women compare with those of other ethnic groups in the United States (US). Data from the General Social Survey are used to construct three distinct indices of attitudes toward social welfare programmes, toward reproductive rights, and the rights of sexual minorities. While the results of multivariate regression analysis confirm that women demonstrate more progressive social attitudes, the effect of a Hispanic identification is inconsistent across the three indices. Nevertheless, as the Hispanic population of the US continues to grow, its influence on public policies is bound to increase. Consequently, additional research of this subpopulation is recommended.
