Summary:
Girls have very low social status in many parts of Malawi. In the more traditional communities, such as amongst the Yao people, young girls and boys go through initiation rites as they move into adulthood. In some cases, girls are forced to have sex with older men as part of this, and often girls as young as 11 are married off to escape poverty. As a result, they are especially vulnerable to early pregnancy and HIV.  Read more...

Abstract:

Girls have very low social status in many parts of Malawi. In the more traditional communities, such as amongst the Yao people, young girls and boys go through initiation rites as they move into adulthood. In some cases, girls are forced to have sex with older men as part of this, and often girls as young as 11 are married off to escape poverty. As a result, they are especially vulnerable to early pregnancy and HIV. Relative Values follows 16-year-old Ajamia Jonathan who had a child by her stepfather, who is four times her age and sees nothing wrong with their relationship. Against the background of initiation rites that are taking place at the time of filming, Relative Values explores the struggle between cultural traditions and female health and wellbeing.
