Angie doesn’t want to be a victim anymore. Deep down what she hopes for most is to find a good man to love and to feel safe in this world, but her fears take her down the wrong path. She repeats the abuse that started at age eleven when she was molested–an abusive marriage is followed by homelessness and she eventually sells herself in demeaning ways. She tries to convince herself that she is in control of her life and that she has power over men. But it is not the life she dreamed of. Angie meets Julie, who quickly becomes her best friend. They realize the similarities in their struggles and in the struggles of other women: everything from childhood sexual assault, domestic abuse, rape, prostitution, depression, morals, liberation, relationships and independence. Angie’s anger and suffering lead her to fight for change for herself and all women through writing. She gets a job at a women’s newspaper. Her self-esteem grows. With Julie’s help, Angie decides to do a piece on the women working at a local strip club. They discover the sad realities of the women’s lives and encourage them to make healthy changes. But first they decide to get revenge on the men who go to, The Gentlemen’s Club.
