Summary
This hard-hitting, up-to-date documentary grapples with the special problems of women in the AIDS epidemic. It will encourage frank discussion on of subjects such as safe sex for both straight and lesbian women, health care for HIV positive women, and advocacy efforts. Despite attempts at education, HIV is still thought of as a male, gay disease, even by doctors and health care workers. This sometimes results in women being improperly diagnosed, even if they exhibit classic symptoms.In addition, women have a difficult time insisting on safe sex since they are often afraid to antagonize their partners. Understanding safe sex means being clear about the level of risk of transmission in different sexual activities. This issue is explored at a safe sex workshop for men and women led by an experienced health educator. In another setting, the risk of HIV infection for lesbians is discussed. By filming a broad cross-section of women, the social and political implications of this disease are raised
