For Undocumented Women, Farm Work Rife With Harassment

"Hundreds of thousands of women and girls working on the nation’s farms
and in packing houses face the threat of sexual violence and harassment,
according to a report released on Wednesday by Human Rights Watch.  Human
Rights Watch recently interviewed 160 farmworkers, growers, law
enforcement officials, attorneys, service providers, and other experts
on the agricultural workplace in eight states. Nearly all of the 52
workers interviewed said they had experienced sexual harassment or
violence or knew others who had." – Stephanie Czekalinski, May 17, 2012.
