dc.description.abstract This study focuses on the important issue of young adult female sexuality in an age of HIV/AIDS and looks at the influence of the parental home, the church and young black women’s own belief about their sexual behaviour. Sexuality is influenced by societal voices (shaped by history) that override religious and parental voices. Parents are hesitant to speak out, the church is burdened with an antiquated and unworkable sexual ethics and the young women’’s belief is overpowered by social discourses. Male domination and infidelity exacerbate female vulnerability and contribute to the powerlessness of young women in sexual relationships. Feminist theology puts forward a comprehensive theology that demands integrated embodiment and full humanity for women, serving as a corrective for historical and societal voices. This can be achieved when relationships are mutual, reciprocal and empowering. This study proposes an accountable, sexual ethics that will renew and recreate the lives and relationships of young people in a confusing and perilous environment. en
