Gender Norms: A Key to Improving Health and Wellness Among Black Women & Girls in US 

Black adolescent girls and young women – referred to as “Black girls” in this report – face special barriers related to both race and gender, which have immense effects on their health, achievement and life outcomes.  This is especially the case for low-income Black girls, who have added challenges associated with poverty.

 

The effects of race are well-explored, and researchers have found strong links to lower life outcomes in health, sexuality and intimate relationships.

 

But what about gender? In this context,  “gender” does not mean the biological fact of being male or female, or even as specific traits usually associated with one sex or the other.

 

Rather, by “gender” refers both to the rules, customs, beliefs and expectations for being a woman or man, as well as the inherent inequities of power and privilege usually associated with these practices.
