Com 410 Unit 4

Unit 4 focused on gender issues related to friendship and romantic relationships, as well as power issues.

One of the things I found most interesting was the issue of power versus empowerment. This was listed by the text as one of the common tensions within romantic relationships. I find that this is the issue that most frequently causes tension in my own relationship - we usually both want to be the one with the power and in control. I don't think either one of us is good at making sure the other is empowered. I really think that working on this issue would help a lot in our relationship.
