Abstract Coercion to engage in unwanted sex places women at risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. A survey of 125 women living in low-income housing developments in Fulton County, Georgia, showed that 53 (42\%) women had engaged in unwanted sex because a male partner threatened to use force or used force to obtain sexual access. Women who had been sexually coerced were more likely to have used marijuana and crack cocaine and to have abused alcohol. Coerced women were more likely to have been physically abused by a domestic partner. These women were also more likely to perceive that requesting male partners to use condoms would create a potentially violent situation. These results suggest that women experience an interactive constellation of social problems that create risks for HIV infection and, therefore, that efforts to prevent HIV infection among women will require multifaceted intervention strategies to reach both men and women at risk.
