At six years old Carmen Aguirre was a Chilean refugee adjusting to life in North America. At eighteen she was a revolutionary dissident married to a man she couldn't fully love. In her twenties she fought to find herself as an actress and break away from the stereotypes thrust upon her - housekeeper, hotel maid, Mexican Hooker #1. But alongside these many identities was another that was hard to embrace and impossible to escape: that of the thirteen-year-old girl attacked by one of Canada's most feared rapists. Thirty-three years after the assault, Carmen decided it was time to meet the man who changed her life.

Explore ways to reduce the rate of HIV infection in street prostitutes--and the inescapable connection between the heroin trade, prostitution, and HIV! This unique book draws on face-to-face interviews that the author conducted on the streets, with heroin-addicted street prostitutes in Southern California and their counterparts in four large Mexican cities. Author David James Bellis illustrates the significant--and surprising--differences in the risk of exposure to HIV and other STDs that exist between street prostitutes in the two countries arising from national differences in the legality, sociology, and economics of sex work. He points out that Mexican prostitutes, for whom sex work is a simple means of livelihood, are “choir girls” compared with their beaten-up, drug-addicted sisters north of the border who perform sex for drug money and are at much greater risk of HIV and other diseases, like Hepatitis C. This book explores those differences, suggesting new directions for United States prostitution and heroin-control policies--laws currently so interwoven that they reinforce each other, accounting for a deadly circle of crime and disease. In addition to the fascinating results of the author's interviews with 72 female street prostitutes in San Bernardino, California, and 102 more in Tijuana, Cd. Juárez, Cd. Victória, and Cuernavaca regarding their personal sexual, drug, and health practices, and their criminal histories, Hotel Ritz-Comparing Mexican and U.S. Street Prostitutes: Factors in HIV/AIDS Transmission explores: the licensing process for legal prostitutes in Mexico the medical testing that Mexico requires prostitutes to undergo the differences in what United States and Mexican prostitutes know about HIV transmission the difference in condom use between United States and Mexican prostitutes the potential benefits of reforming prostitution and drug laws in both countries the benefits of making methadone maintenence and syringes—and heroin—free for heroin-addicted prostitutes the proportion of United States/Mexican prostitutes who would quit the trade if they learned they had AIDS how the social support system in the United States (housing subsidies, TANF/AFDC money, food stamps, etc.) leads to a greater proportion of drug-addicted prostitutes than are found in Mexico Hotel Ritz-Comparing Mexican and U.S. Street Prostitutes: Factors in HIV/AIDS Transmission also provides you with a look at the hierarchy of female sex workers, an explanation of the etiology of AIDS transmission, and a concise history of heroin and prostitution. Helpful tables and an appendix containing the author's survey questions make the data in this well-referenced book easily understandable.

With perceptive, unflinching wit, these three early plays from award-winning Chilean Canadian writer Carmen Aguirre document the hardships, horrors, and heartache of exile, revealing the far-reaching effects of dictatorial violence and terror. Highlighting the fresh perspective refugees bring to North American society, Chile Con Carne and Other Early Works also provides essential context for her more recent plays, Refugee Hotel, Blue Box, and The Trigger. Aguirre's funny, poignant, and biting explorations of refuge and recovery are as pertinent now as when they were first written. Award-winning author and actor Carmen Aguirre has written and co-written more than twenty plays. Her critically acclaimed memoir, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, won CBC Canada Reads 2012 and is a number-one national bestseller.

This case study explores the operation of a brothel community in Frontier City, Mexico during a period of economic prosperity (1969-1972). Participant observation provides a typology of the major forms of prostitution practiced and the characteristics of the clientele (American, Mexican-American, Mexican) are discussed. While most studies of prostitution ignore the importance and structure of the clientele,. i.e., men: their recreational values, dating preferences and social functions, this study demonstrates that the nature, size, and composition of the clientele pool are related in important ways to the level of economic activity in the American southwest and traces the impact this has on physical and social mobility, working conditions, friendship and recreational networks that emerge on the site. The major findings concern an elaboration of the social psychological requirements for negotiating the client role; the importance of the male heterosexual subculture in learning to become a client; the focal concerns of the prostitutes and the lack of structural support for pimps--seen largely in terms of functional substitutes and institutional arrangements. A Postscript (The Summer of 1974) explores significant changes in the scene after roughly two years.
