- About CIR
For the women who pick and handle the food we eat every day, sexual assault often comes with the job.
But this story has been largely hidden until now, when FRONTLINE, Unvision, CIR and the Investigative Reporting Program at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism collaborated on Rape in the Fields/Violación de un Sueño. In broadcast segments, radio, multimedia and text, this project looks at the hidden price that many migrant women, especially those who are working illegally, are paying to keep their jobs and provide for their families.
Join CIR reporter Bernice Yeung, FRONTLINE correspondent Lowell Bergman and "Rape in the Fields" producer Andres Cediel in a live online chat about the story and its production, resources for women who may have faced abuse in the workplace and any other questions you may have.
Pamela Silva Conde, co-anchor for Univision's "Primer Impacto," will host.
