Feminism and (non)monogamy

I did a podcast interview last week for Feminist Current about whether monogamy was compatible with feminism. The podcast deals with some of the historical context of monogamy and its implications for women. It also covers the feminist potentials of non-monogamy and the question of whether open forms of non-monogamy – such as polyamory – operate for the benefit of men and/or whether they have potential as a relationship style which is suited to other genders.
