Abstract [en]

Socialisation is a life long process in which people acquire the knowledge, rules, opinions and attitudes they need to adjust into a culture and a society. The cultural and traditional beliefs in a society influence gender roles in a society. Women in Zambia are subordinated men and suffer more from sexual and reproductive ill-health. Previous research show that females engage in more risk behaviors even though they have more positive attitudes towards safe sex which makes them more vulnerable when it comes to sexual and reproductive health. The aim of this study was to study the opinions about sex related information, and knowledge and attitudes about sexual and reproductive health among young girls. To get these answers a quantitative study was made in Kitwe in Zambia. The result showed that most of the respondents believe it to be important to get information about sex but almost half of them thought that they had got too little information. It also showed that the respondents believe themselves to have good knowledge about HIV/AIDS but a lower knowledge about contraceptives. To reduce the inequalities in health between women and men empowering women is of great importance.
