Abstract:This article provides insight into working women's perceptions of power, gender-based violence and HIV-infection risk within intimate relationships. The article is based on findings from interviews with five women employees in an airline business in Windhoek, Namibia. The women were asked to retell their experiences of power, gender-based violence and HIV-infection risk within their intimate relationships, including the significance of the presence of an employee Assistance Program (EAP) in their lives as employees of an airline business. The article explores the extent of the problem, and offers a theoretical perspective and data analysis. It recommends workplace programmes for the protection and promotion of women's wellbeing and rights. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
