Sarah has just landed her dream job working as a barista for the best cafe in North Carolina.

Her cafe will soon be featured in the New York Times and grab international attention.

But it has nothing to do with the coffee.

Rather, Sarah's bosses will hurt many women in her community.

This is the real story about misogyny damaging the life of a young woman, her struggle to regain control and bring her community back together.

This is the first ever episode of Filter Stories, the untold stories hidden in your cup of coffee.

Trigger warning: this episode contains misogynistic language.
