Anissa Durham's Work

Black girls are so often viewed as sex objects that the blame is shifted to the girls being sexualized instead of the adults.
One in four Black girls will be sexually abused before age 18. When the women we spoke to told their parents, they weren’t protected.
Black girls are called “fast” and boys are seen as men. Both lose their innocence thanks to adultification bias.
