Anonymised transcript of an interview with Amanda, who moved to London from another country on her own eighteen months ago. She was born in England, but moved away with her family. Amanda has had a difficult few years and goes into detail of a gang rape that she was victim of, as well as the ensuing court case. She has had a lot of different feelings to process since this happened, but has found other people's gendered reactions to it quite interesting. She has had other sexual relationships, both before and after this, though some of these have also been nonconsensual. She is in a secure relationship now, and is able to enjoy sex with her partner. Amanda is on the pill, but has recently started using condoms too. Sex education in her all girls school was limited, but her mum was able to fill in the gaps. Amanda has lots of plans for the future, but hopes for marriage and children at some point.
