I believe that the Cycle of Violence is the best explanation to why Domestic Violence is here with us, and why women stay in abusive relationships.
I have been thinking that there has to be a reason to why Commercial Sex workers stay on the streets despite being abused by their customers; sometimes they are not paid for their services, are beaten up etc. Yet, they remain twilight girls, day in, day out.
It has also been suggested that most do not stay in the business for long. They tend to age faster, and therefore less appealing to customers. At least, this is so at Koinange Street in Nairobi.
What is the psychological / social perspective of the trade? I want to take you through what I have discovered as the root causes of it. At least in my country…There is a Faith-Based Organisation in Kenya that is rehabilitating twilight girls. They were inspired by a similar best practice in Ethiopia.
Let me know what you think so that I can embark on the piece.
