Processing gender: lived experiences of reproducing and transforming gender norms over the life course of young people in Northern Uganda
Published in Culture, Health and Sexuality, this article provides a framework to identify the resources, institutions, and processes that shape adolescents’ gendered choices and behaviors. This understanding can be used to inform decisions about when and where to intervene with program and policy levers.
The article results from a qualitative, longitudinal study conducted in tandem with the Gender Roles Equality and Transformation (GREAT) Project implemented by the Institute for Reproductive Health, Pathfinder International and Save the Children, together with local partners Straight Talk and Concerned Parent Association, with funding from USAID.
GREAT aimed to promote gender-equitable attitudes and behaviors among adolescents (ages 10-19) and their communities with the goal of reducing gender-based violence and improving sexual and reproductive health outcomes in post-conflict communities in northern Uganda.
