A Rise in Prostitution in Haiti following the 2010 Earthquake
After the January 2010 earthquake, prostitution rose to its highest level of prominence in Haitian society. The desperation of the women trading their wares has driven prices to an all time low. This coupled with a surplus in the workforce, not to mention the variety to be had for those who are purveyors of 'fresh meat', has caused the rise in prostitution's popularity. Never has it been so easily accessible, so well stocked, or so mainstream, with even the likes of teenaged and child prostitution practiced in broad daylight.
