From Frontline's "Rape in the Fields"

Frontline correspondent Lowell Bergman uncovers the hidden price that many migrant women working in America's fields and packing plants, especially those who are undocumented, are paying to keep their jobs and provide for their families. The documentary “Rape in the Fields” is about how female farm workers fall prey to their field bosses and co-workers—and dare not speak up against their attackers for fear that they’ll lose their jobs or be deported. It's is a collaboration between Frontline, Univision News, the Center for Investigative Reporting, and the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley. "Rape in the Fields" airs  June 25, at 10 p.m. on PBS.
