A large group of women who use our services is young girls with minority background – and many of their inquiries are about issues attached to sexuality. An important focus for us is prevention activities that promote the girls’ right to make decisions concerning their own bodies and sexuality – and we also offer advice and counseling to young girls and others who have questions concerning this topic.
A consistently predominant theme among minority girls’ inquiries to us about their sexuality is related to virginity. Many young girls with minority backgrounds who have had sexual relations before marriage experience great mental stress due to the fear that someone in their family or one of their future in-laws will discover that she is not a virgin.
The MiRA Centre provides extensive guidance and care around such matters. The MiRA Centre is committed to supporting the young girls in their own decisions and helping them to work through their fears and figure out exactly what they want for themselves.
