After a 2017 Girlhood Interrupted study that revealed adults view black girls as more adult-like, Georgetown Law conducted a follow-up study that finds black girls routinely experience adultification bias. The new study is known as 'Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias.' The co-author of the report, Rebecca Epstein (who also leads the Initiative on Gender, Justice & Opportunity at Georgetown Law's Center on Poverty and Inequality) came on Cheddar to discuss factors that contribute to adultification and how this form of discrimination is linked to harsher treatment.
