Gender Socialization during Adolescence in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Conceptualization, influences and outcomes

Adolescence is a critical period in the development of gender attitudes and behaviours, which have potentially life-long effects.

The paper concludes with recommendations for more holistic policy and programming efforts around gender socialization in adolescence.
