Angela is a gangly, giggly teenager in a Mickey Mouse t-shirt and sneakers. She also is the mother of a baby she bore at age 14 when she had sex with her teacher but did not know where babies came from. Like Angela, many girls and women in Guatemala have unwanted pregnancies due to a lack of information about sex and their own bodies and endemic violence, according to women's healthcare campaigners. Guatemala has one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in Latin America, putting girls on a path to poverty and dependence rather than school or decent work. Government statistics cited by Planned Parenthood Federation recorded more than 5, pregnancies by girls under 14 in - and in four out of five cases the offender was a close relative such as a father, uncle or grandparent. One quarter of the children in Guatemala were born to adolescent mothers in the last five years, data shows.

Prostitution in Guatemala - Wikipedia

Prostitution in Guatemala is legal but procuring is prohibited. Child sex tourism is a problem in the country especially in areas such as Antigua and Guatemala City. Human trafficking is also a significant and growing problem in the country, particularly the exploitation of children in prostitution. Many women and children are brought into the country from El Salvador , Nicaragua , and Honduras by organized rings that force them into prostitution. In colonial Guatemala, and into the 20th century, prostitution was thought of as necessary to protect the virtues of the "ladies" of Guatemala. Brothels and street prostitution were tolerated and commonplace.

Prostitution in Guatemala

For the first time ever, sex slavery will be prosecuted where the war crime took place, 30 years after 11 Mayan women from Sepur Zarco were raped and enslaved. First the army came for the men. Fifteen Mayan peasant leaders in the tiny hamlet of Sepur Zarco in eastern Guatemala were seized and killed or forcibly disappeared. A few weeks later, they came back for the women. Soldiers raped them in front of their children, burned down their houses and crops, stole their meagre belongings and made them move into shacks outside the nearby military base.
Outside the shacks, a few men loiter, waiting and smoking; on the other side of the doors, women engage in the dangerous business of selling sex for money. Those who cannot pay are likely to be strangled. Although a police station is located in the same neighborhood, the authorities have turned their backs on the area, leaving these criminal networks to run the show, and is theirs whose presence weighs heavily in the air. This makes them extremely vulnerable.
