The lawsuit said Epstein touched her inappropriately after climbing into bed with her when she was 16.
It said the attack occurred after Epstein flew her to his ranch in New Mexico in 1996.
Her sister, Maria Farmer, and an Ohio woman, Teresa Helm, also sued the estate Tuesday.
All three lawsuits seek unspecified damages.
Annie Farmer, one of Epstein's accusers: "I was 16-years-old when I had the misfortune to meet" Jeffrey Epstein, and she was flown into New Mexico.
"His wealth, his privilege and the notoriety of the case would make it… more difficult," Farmer says, her voice cracking.

A message seeking comment was left with a lawyer for Epstein’s estate.
Epstein killed himself in August in his cell at a federal lockup as he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
Annie Farmer was one of two women to speak out against him in court.
