Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias

Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias
Jamilia J. Blake PH.D, Rebecca Epstein, J.D. | Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality | 2019

In June 2017, the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality released Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls’ Childhood, a report that presented the findings from our quantitative analysis of a form of gendered racial bias against Black girls: adultification. This bias is a stereotype in which adults view Black girls as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers, devoid of any individualized context. In other words, adultification bias is not an evaluation of maturity based on observation of an individual girl’s behavior, but instead is a presumption — a typology applied generally to Black girls.
