This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

1. Was it important for Gail to pursue Nkosi’s dream of attending public school? What effects did her determination have on South African society? Of course it was important. Gail’s determination and hard work led to a new government policy which allowed children with aids to attend school. “the South African Parliament, in session in Cape Town, enacted an antibias statute that made it illegal to keep HIV positive children like me Nokia out of public schools.”(J. Wooten, 2004). 2. On p.180 it states South Africa has one of the highest incidences of rape in the world with one rape estimated to take place every minute of every hour of every day. Wooten elaborates that a large majority of these sexual assaults are against young children, even infants, because one myth is that having sex with a virgin can “cure” or “protect” a man against HIV. What are the possible ways a person could be exposed to HIV? Once an individual is infected, can they ever be “cured”? What are the consequences of such behaviors?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
