Description

  • FRONTLINE: Rape on the Night Shift

    Following up on the award-winning collaboration that produced Rape in the Fields in 2013, FRONTLINE, Univision, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), the Investigative Reporting Program (IRP) at UC Berkeley, and KQED team up to uncover the sexual abuse of immigrant women, often undocumented, who work the night shift, often alone or isolated in empty buildings--and vulnerable to sexual violence.

    With firsthand accounts from female janitorial workers who say they have been sexually abused by their coworkers and supervisors, this collaborative investigation tells the stories of the steep price many women in the janitorial industry pay to keep their jobs and provide for their families. Many of the women have been terrified to report their alleged attackers, so these cases are often difficult to prosecute.

    Drawing on interviews with the women themselves, an attorney for the federal agency that enforces sexual harassment laws in the workplace, and a watchdog group that monitors workplace conditions for janitors, the investigation sheds new light on an underreported problem--and reveals how employers have fallen short in dealing with it.
