On the surface, Dr. Josephine Kulea is like many moms: she has two children, ages 12 and 17. She gets up in the morning, makes them breakfast, then she goes to work. She grew up with an education and graduated from nursing school. Dr. Kulea comes from a pastoral community called The Samburu, located in the north of Kenya. As part of their culture, girls as young as age 6 are “beaded”— given beaded necklaces that label them as sexual partners for their male relatives.
