'the oldest profession'

An Ethiopian woman who alleged she was gang-raped narrowly escaped being charged with prostitution and adultery after she convinced the court she was divorced.

An Ethiopian woman who says she was gang-raped in Sudan has been convicted of "indecent acts".
The woman of 18 was three months' pregnant at the time of the alleged attack.
She was arrested after video of her allegedly being sexually abused was circulated on social media.
Three men who admitted having sex with the woman and two who distributed the video were reportedly sentenced to being whipped.
The Sharia law popular in Sudan is not in force in Europe, but that doesn't mean various countries are not wrestling with the "legal" and "illegal" aspects of commercialized sexual intercourse.
