The actresses were among the stars to address the wage gap for Latina women in social media posts Thursday.

Latinas make just 53 cents for every dollar the average white, non-Hispanic man earns, according to Forbes.

"Today is #LatinaEqualPay Day where we must fight for equal pay," Vergara wrote on Instagram.

"There's still so much work for latinas to do to be treated equally. I am #phenomenallyLatina, and I support Latina equal pay!"

The "Modern Family" star and other supporters wore t-shirts reading "Phenomenally Latina." Proceeds from the shirts went to the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health.

"The average Latina makes 47% less than the average white man, but 66% of American workers recognize this pay gap is unfair," Longoria said on her own account.

"Education is the first step towards making a change - get the facts from new research by @SurveyMonday & @LeanInOrg. #47PercentCounts #LatinaEqualPay."

"Jane the Virgin" star Gina Rodriguez and Jessica Alba also voiced their support on Instagram.

"Latina workers on average only get 53 cents for every $1 a man is paid. The gap has widened since last year, and for some, it's even worse. This is an injustice, and there's still so much work to do for Latinas to be treated equally," Rodriguez wrote.

"Today is #LatinaEqualPayDay, when we 'catch up' to what white, non-hispanic men were paid in 2017," Alba added.

"The gap is widest for Latina workers, who on average only get 53 cents for every $1 a man is paid."

Longoria previously addressed the Latina pay disparity in an op-ed for Fortune.

She said change will come from people acknowledging unconscious biases, including women in executive and creative decision-making and improving recruitment and employment practices.

"Like most problems we face, the wage gap is best solved by working together," the actress said.

"As women, we discuss the need to 'lean in,' but we must also remember to reach back. No matter your gender or position, you can mentor a woman in your company or industry."
