Alika Kinan was trafficked and sexually exploited over a period of 20 years in the brothels of Ushuaia in Southern Argentina. In she made history when she took both her pimps and the Argentinian state itself to court A short film about Alika with English subtitles. My grandmother and my aunts were prostituted. My father was a consumer of prostitution and also a pimp.
Alika Kinan was 15 years old when her parents, locked in a violent and abusive relationship, finally separated for good. I remember those long days with my little sister, living on potatoes and drinking mate. In , at the age of 20, she was offered a flight to Ushuaia, the capital of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world.
She said that we could make good money there. Ushuaia is a coastal city with an important port and Naval base, creating a high demand for prostitution from the sailors and fishermen who pass through the city in their thousands. Over time the city grew around these men, who came from all over the world. They also needed women to live with, to cook for them and to bear their children.
And the women were their property. They were brought in by the men, owned by the men and there to serve the men. The clubs open at 8pm, when it is still broad daylight in the city, and service the men all through the night until the following morning.
Brothels are illegal in Argentina, but nobody controls their operation. They took me to the club and I remember walking down a very long corridor filled with barred windows and doors. One of the doors opened and a woman welcomed me inside. When I walked in there were lots of girls in bathrobes who all went to their posts because they thought a client was coming in. They took me into an office and told me in basic terms how the system worked. In those years the prostitution industry in Ushuaia operated in open collaboration with the local authorities.
