"The Southern Poverty Law Center's 2010 study, Injustice on Our Plates, based on in-depth interviews with 150 immigrant women who have worked in the U.S. food industry, found that sexual harassment and even brutal sexual assaults by male co-workers and supervisors are a constant threat. In fact, virtually every one of these women reported sexual harassment to be a major workplace problem. Many of these women, who worked in various states, saw it as a constant danger that must be endured for a day's pay.

"A separate study published in 2010 found that among 150 women of Mexican descent working in the fields in California's Central Valley, 80 percent said they had experienced sexual harassment. That compares to roughly half of all women in the U.S. workforce who say they have experienced at least one incident."

"Meet Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and leader of Liberty Central, a sort of ersatz Tea Party that aims to combat the 'tyranny' of President Obama. The New York Times has learned that on October 9 of this year, Thomas telephoned Anita Hill, a former aide to Clarence Thomas who accused him of sexual harassment—a charge he denied—during his 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings. In a voicemail, Ginni Thomas said, 'I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.'”
