In the words of 26 year old Rosalie: 'My mother always says: all that reading and studying, you'll never get yourself a good husband like your sister! You're too complicated for a black man. You'll end up falling in love with a white man! Journalism's a whore's game. That's what she says. The fact is, I'd like to become Minister for Women's Affairs. Black men don't think anything about beating their wives. It's illegal where you come from. But you get divorced so easily, in 48 hours sometimes! Why then should I go to Europe?  I'd end up washing up somewhere, for sure.'
