Dolores Huerta is a civil rights icon. Her work for farm workers and immigrants in this country, has changed the lives of millions. And in the documentary Dolores, we get an up close and personal look at this woman who sacrificed so much in the fight for justice. Even while Huerta was on the frontlines fighting for human rights, she still faced sexual harassment and discrimination. We got a chance to chat with Huerta about the treatment she and other female farm workers experienced and she shared her hopes for the #MeToo movement.
