Prostitution in Iraq

A look at how the forces of war cause women to turn to survival prostitution — a choice they would not otherwise have made.

The part of the post I found most interesting:

As is always the case, the same fanatics who deny women a place in society because of “religion” are the ones who ensure that they can earn money as prostitutes, indeed are much happier with prostitution being the main way that a woman can make money independently of a man, because it allows them to indulge their own dark desires while maintaining their own auras of purity and piety in their public facade.

It’s certainly true in the Muslim world. And the hypocrisy — “it allows them to indulge their own dark desires while maintaining their own auras of purity and piety in their public facade” — is certainly true here in the predominantly-Christian US. Although US women have more options to making a living than just prostitution, those who do make their living as prostitutes (whether by choice or necessity), understand the truth of the statement.

Is this not what the whole DC Madam scandal is about?
