Migrant farmworker women are among the poorest of the working poor. Historically marginalized and disenfranchised by feminists and the legal community, as well as by male farmworker activists, migrant farmworker women continue to be plagued by problems of employment discrimination, workplace sexual harassment, and domestic violence. While some feminist legal scholars have argued that the solution to such problems is to make the feminist movement more inclusive and to move away from taking the experiences of white middle-class women as representative of the experiences of all women, Kamm argues that a better alternative would be to provide migrant farmworker women with the resources they need so that they can empower themselves.
