Women at Risk pp Cite as. From the volume of stories in newspapers, and studies reported in medical and health journals, one could conclude that prostitutes are a major influence in the spread of the epidemic of HIV infection. Even in the absence of evidence, print media leaders such as The New York Times and The Washington Post have printed many stories supporting the thesis that heterosexual prostitution plays a major role in the HIV epidemic in the United States King, A common subject of these articles is that a female prostitute has been charged with attempted murder, or willful endangerment of an undercover officer, because even though she tested positive for HIV at some point in the past, she continued to stand on street corners.
Prostitution in Somalia
Canadian woman taken hostage in Somalia speaks out abuse sex abuse
I remember the day I finally caved and asked my mum about the birds and the bees. It came as a surprise when my mum reassured me that sex is as natural to humans as eating or sleeping, and that there is nothing morally bad about engaging in it as long as it is done under the right circumstances. However, I quickly came to realise that this liberal discussion about sex was not as normalised in my wider community as it was in my household. In the Somali community, sex is discussed using hushed tones, and is veiled under the pretence of privacy and shame. As young people, we are often warned of the detriments of rampant sex and of the fact that sexual activity outside of marriage is a sin in Islam, a religion practiced by most Somalis, but rarely of the benefits that can be reaped both emotionally and physically from consensual sex. For the most part, our parents shy away from discussing sex with us because it is seen as a deviant act, unless it is performed in private between a husband and wife. Although I can understand that religion and their need to uphold an Islamic standard has an impact on the way that sex is discussed in our community, I also feel that it is important that we break the taboo and silence and explore it in an open and healthy way.

Displaced Somali women leave with food rations from a distribution centre near Jowhar, a town north of the capital Mogadishu, December 9, One woman, known as Ayanna, told HRW she was gang raped at gunpoint by six Burundian soldiers after going to their outpatient clinic to get medicine for her sick baby. Rape is rarely punished in Somalia, particularly of vulnerable women living in overcrowded Mogadishu camps housing some , people displaced by war and famine. Sexual exploitation — the abuse of power or trust for sexual purposes — is in violation of their code of conduct.
As she was driving to a rally to raise awareness about violence against women, Amanda Lindhout started to have doubts about her plan to speak publicly for the first time about how she had been raped and tortured while being held captive in Somalia. So for me, just like for any woman that has experienced this kind of abuse, to stand in front of people and say that publicly and really own that experience was extremely difficult for me to do. Lindhout has spoken before of her time being held captive by a group of Somali youths who had kidnapped her off the side of the road outside the capital of Mogadishu in August
