  4. Women are faced with much hardships in today’s society, the movie “Temptation” betrays HIV positive women in a negative light. The movie is keeping the stigma and fear alive within the black communities which keeps people from getting tested and taking control of their health. Please sign the petition because SILENCE =DEATH.
