A Harsh Price to Pay in Pursuit of a Dream: For Central American Women, Sexual Coercion Is Hazard on Route to U.S.

Date: December 6, 2004
Author: Mary Jordan
QUOTE: "If you come to my office and lie down with me, you can pass." That was the ... price of passage to the United States.

ABSTRACT: In this article Jordan tells the story of one Central American woman's unsuccessful attempt to get to America to find work and her resulting life of prostitution in a Mexican border town (apparently a common plight for female migrants who fail to make it across the Mexican border).
