This chapter studies prevailing gender relations, patterns and processes of sexual communication, and the capacity of the female condom to empower women in sexual “negotiations” with men. It argues for a participatory approach to implementing interventions that are aimed at introducing new prevention methods, and identifies the structural factors imposed on the lives of women who are engaged in sex work.
