Fuse, May 1986, v. 9, no. 6, pp. 14-17

Pure Virtue is a time-based collage of fast-paced and humorous mini-skits, featuring Tanya Mars playing Queen Elizabeth in full dress. Mars' video asks "How can women reconcile exercising social power and control over their lives, with having relationships with men marinated in male privilege - men who persistently plot to expand their own domain of power?"
