Thousands of office janitors work at night, cleaning up our work spaces after we go home. Many are immigrants – some undocumented – and many are women. With these conditions, they are particularly vulnerable to sexual violence. Winner of the TC/RHDF 2016 Directors' Choice Award.

In this first-ever Spanish language podcast from Reveal , a team of investigative journalists worked to uncover this unspoken epidemic, and to advocate for reform.
