NT: Trading sex for food, alcohol, cigarettes and drugs: Aboriginal women used as sexual commodities

NT: Trading sex for food, alcohol, cigarettes and drugs: Aboriginal women used as sexual commodities | Power Corrupts! Does It? | Scoop.it

It has been part of life in the north since frontier times: Aboriginal women used as sexual commodities.

 

That is the reason the Stolen Generations exist - comfort women for white pastoralists, builders and miners, passing through the lands. Now men cruise Darwin's streets and parks targeting homeless long-grass women, whose lives are mired in poverty, social exclusion, stigma, hunger, trauma, violence, deteriorating health and addiction.

 

Men still pay the equivalent of handfuls of sugar, tea and flour. Until now, no researchers have ventured into the long grass and asked Aboriginal women to tell their stories of this common but unspoken trade.

 

What has emerged from the work of Dr Catherine Holmes and Dr Eva McRae-Williams, working through the Batchelor Institute, is a visceral insight into the dangers and desperation of the lives of long-grass women. The women appoint "captains" among their groups to take turns having sex with cruising white men.
