arrow for change – sexuality: gender and sexual practice

rsz_afc30

Discussions about women’s sexuality, unlike in Western feminist discourses in the seventies, are now likely to be contextualised in duscussions about sexual health, sexual practices, risk-taking and disease prevention. This makes sense in the light of the global pandemic in which five million women have become infected by HIV, most commonly during unprotected heterosexual intercourse. The role of gender (and culture, ethnicity, or class) that acts as barriers to health promoting behaviors is being debated in order to inform better practices in HIV/AIDS education and prevention.
