The purpose of this study was to compare the feeling of hostility between  prostitutes affected with AIDS(active group) , women get infected through their husbands(passive group) and the normal women. The study sample contained 90 women and of them  60 women admitted to Imam-Khomeini Hospital for AIDS. Of these 60 women, 30 of them got infected through their various sexual partners and the other 30 women got infected through their spouses. The rest of 30 women were without AIDS and like the other two groups had one children and had an educational degree ranging from dipolamo to bachelor. Redford- Williams Hostility Inventory(RWHI) was used to gather required data. To examine research hypothesis ANOVA & x2 were used. According to results, the feeling of hostility in the normal group was signifcantly less than the feeling of hostility in the active and passive groups. In addition, there was significant differences between the active and passive groups in terms of the feeling of hostility.Given the higher feeling of hosility in prostitutes and the possibility of resulting hostile acts and of not observing safe sex, it is necessary to pay more attention to these women ,support them and provide the necessary helps for them. Furthermore, an appropriate planning is needed for providing medical,cultural and pyschological services for this women and for increasing the knowledge of society
