Amid the National Conversation About Sexual Harassment, “Rape on the Night Shift” Examines Abuse of Women in the Janitorial Industry / by IRP INC

Following up on the award-winning collaboration that produced Rape in the Fields/Violación de un Sueño in 2013, this 2015 investigation from FRONTLINE (PBS), the Investigative Reporting Program (IRP) at UC Berkeley, Univision, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), and KQED found that immigrant women working as janitors are particularly vulnerable to sexual violence, and that many are afraid to come forward about abuse out of fear they’ll lose their jobs or be deported.
