“….he’s got the power in the relationship…he’s not going to let his wife tell him that he has to use a condom”

“….they want to dominate but they’re dominating without much to contribute…..and yet I’m the one paying the bills here, I’m the one with the job…taking care of the kid…and yet you’re freelancing….you’re using my car….you’re staying in my house but then you still want to come and tell me how to live my life….”

Three women talk about the societal imbalances that exist between men and women. Specifically focusing on the power dynamics in intimate relationships, they discuss condom use within committed relationships, infidelity and the vulnerability women face in our patriarchal society.
