This interview is part of the Women, Risk and Aids Project (1989-90) archive which was created as part of the Reanimating Data Project (2018-20).

Anonymised transcript of an interview with Carol, who is very musical and hopes to make a career out of it one day, perhaps in music journalism. Sex education in her secondary school in Sussex came much too late - many of her female peers were leaving school early due to pregnancy. She didn't think that public health campaigns around AIDS were very effective and that they should be more direct. Carol hasn't had a sexual relationship yet and is waiting until she feels as if she might be ready. She thinks she would practice safe sex in terms of condom use, but understands that some young women can find this tricky to navigate. Carol identifies as a feminist, though her peers seem to have a negative and limited understanding of who a feminist can be.
