Evil lurks behind sex workers grouping

SEX Workers Education and Advocacy Task Force must not force its lack of morals on South Africa. I sympathise deeply with women forced into prostitution, but selling their bodies to feed their children will only make them orphans when they succumb to HIV.

And what will they do when they reach their sell-by date? Become madams and exploit others? Don't legalise prostitution, but rescue the women and give them skills. Don't allow pimps to wreck families, homes and communities and empower drug dealers and human traffickers.

How many prostitutes does Sweat represent and why has it emerged just before 2010? Who is funding it and why is it getting so much media coverage?
