Sexuality, Poverty and the Inner City


Elijah Anderson, Ph.D., Department of Sociology, and Patricia Lynn Stern, both of the University of Pennsylvania, explore teen sexuality from the perspectives of youth in two very different Philadelphia communities: an inner-city black neighborhood and a predominantly white working class one. Seminar participants consider how issues such as race, religion, social mores, and welfare relate to teen pregnancy rates. This publication was produced as part of an ongoing seminar series, jointly sponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI), on “Sexuality and American Social Policy.” The series is co-sponsored by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and The Population Council.
