I've been working on this piece since 2013, when I heard about the horrible sexual assaults the immigrant women are enduring in the fields. It took me this long to complete because I wanted to get it right. For fear of deportation and being separated from their families, these innocent women face a wall. Many of them feel they have nowhere and no one to turn to. Please watch this FRONTLINE video "Rape in the Fields" and share this image so these women's struggles are heard and these perpetrators are divulged.
I've been through sexual harassment in the workplace. It is not easy to go through, even as a US citizen, and it is a trauma that affects you for the rest of your life. My heart goes out to these women.
