Kenya: Organizing Women Against Fish For Sex Trade

We hope to organize women to tackle issues of their reproductive rights. We will focus on women fish mongers on the ten beaches of Lake Victoria who are dehumanized by fishermen on the beaches. They are forced to have sex with the men before they have access to fish which they sell for their survival. This callous and dangerous situation perpetuates the infection of HIV/AIDS, resulting in forming strong networks in control of the fish trade.

    This would definitely highlight the plight of these ‘vulnerable’ class,women in fishing around Lake Victoria. I have worked around Lake Victoria and with the women and the situation is dire. Such media will not only narrate the situation through ‘first voice’ but will capture worldwide attention and elicit more proactive and sustainable strategies.
