This week, The California Report released "Rape on the Night Shift," a collaborative investigation into the sexual abuse of female janitors. The story, produced with our partners FRONTLINE, Univision, the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley and Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, throws light on an industry in which women’s complaints of sexual assault and rape often have been mishandled or ignored by their employers.

- KQED Central Valley Bureau Chief Sasha Khokha
- Reveal reporter Bernice Yeung
- FRONTLINE and IRP producer Andrés Cediel
