I found a copy of the interview for Miss World Magazine where Sofia talks about rape victimes:
- Confidence and trust are important. More important than lecturing and knowledge on how to use condoms.http://mymlanthereal.word...13/01/15/sofia-hellqvist/
- These children and young people are rarely helped by someone entering into a class and telling them they can get HIV if they don't use a condom, Sofia says. Their reality is that this knowledge does not matter if you don't build up their self esteem. Lots of girls sleep with guys for a pair of jeans, a pair of shoes, for a twenty (bill) or just because the guys want to sleep with them. Many have been raped and their self-image is incredibly poor. Condoms do not help with the poor self-esteem, so when they are here and they feel safe with us we work on getting the girls to respect themselves and their bodies.
I think she meant well, but this just comes of as very ignorant to me. And really, who is she to talk as she herself made a career out of taking off her clothes and doing God knows what for money, fame and status.
