We're kicking off the new year (and closing season 3) by looking at relationships - how do you know if it’s time to walk away, and how do you deal with the aftermath? For many women, the pressure to fulfil society’s gender roles and be in a (heterosexual) relationship make it a lot harder to confront toxic aspects of a partnership. Unequal power dynamics and violence within romantic relationships has been normalised to the point that many womxn are encouraged to 'make it work' at any cost. Hell, even friendships and the pressure to ‘be nice’ can produce toxic patterns.

New Year's resolutions are a social construct, but it's never a bad time to take stock of the people closest to you. We talk about some of our most memorable break-ups, what we did in the aftermath, and what womxn in particular have to navigate when trying to end toxic relationships.
