Gender Norms Harm Kids Everywhere
To believe that some are beneficiaries and some are victims is absolutely wrong — everyone is a victim of these norms
The health consequences of these gender norms are huge, When boys and men are taught that girls are weak, sexual objects for the taking, adolescent girls pay a vast price, "They are at greater risk for HIV and STIs, child marriage, they are at far, far, far more risk of gender-based violence." For boys, an emphasis on being strong — or macho — encourages them to engage in risky behavior like smoking, drinking and using drugs at an earlier age. They're also more likely to get injured in traffic accidents and die of homicide,"To believe that some are beneficiaries and some are victims is absolutely wrong — everyone is a victim of these gender norms."
