Original transcript of an interview with Gina, who would like to be a journalist. Gina is engaged to her partner of three years or so. She had quite a difficult childhood, rife with domestic violence, sexual assault and her father's infidelity, so has found it difficult to trust anyone - sex had been framed as something 'dirty', and she had been in trouble with the police and with her school a lot as a teenager. Gina and her mother had both had suicide attempts, and Gina struggled with an eating disorder. Sex education at her school was very mechanical and fear-mongering, but her mother had always been open about sex education, and Gina had sexually experimented from a young age. Gina holds a lot of strong feminist values, but doesn't want to call herself a feminist - they get bad press. She is in a very loving, supportive relationship at the moment, and is looking forward to seeing how it progresses in the future.
