Homeless Women In Australia Endure Assault Having No Other Alternative
Homeless women in Melbourne, Australia are reportedly being abused by men who seek sexual favour in return for shelter. Women feel obliged to provide sexual favour to men who offer them accommodation because they have no where else to go. The government is considering funding a new program to solve the issue. It has become a given that such women offer sex to get somewhere to stay. A teenager was quoted as saying that she was forced to leave home due her mother's abusive partner as she had to endure three ausiv relationships and she had no alternative so she tolerated in one incident, they assaulted and even filmed her. Nationally, there are about 105,000 homeless people, women comprising a-third of people sleeping rough and a quarter of people in rooming houses.
