Guest post from Monica Ramirez from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
Migrant farmworker women and other low wage immigrant women face sexual harassment and sexual violence in the workplace at alarming rates. Despite the gravity of the problem, few women have ever come forward to seek justice for the wrongs committed against them. These women are often afraid, unfamiliar with their rights and isolated. In an attempt to stop these abuses and to educate community members about their rights in the face of this problem, community groups, non-profit legal organizations, anti-sexual violence advocates, community activists, and many other groups throughout the United States will join together to speak out against this problem and to conduct educational programs to inform farmworker and low-wage immigrant community members of their rights and the community resources available to help victims.
