Marginal status and the differential valuing of girls and women contribute to a wide range of risks and poor outcomes. Subsequent chapters that discuss specific risks and life experiences all address issues that may be examined in terms of gender and the elements of status and of entitlement confounded within gender. Although female gender constitutes one crosscutting framework of risk, there are certainly other bases by which inequity is enacted. Central themes in the analysis for this chapter are that gender covaries with status (resources, alternatives, and entitlement); that gender is emergent in a social and cultural context; and that the meaning of life events are often socially constructed in ways that preserve the status quo.

Many of the contributors are in the forefront of advancing such an integrative and multifaceted model for understanding and improving the psychological and physical health of girls and women. Insofar as possible, each chapter integrates available information about ethnic minority and lesbian woman, rather than segregating the concerns of these groups of women in separate chapters. There is an intentional focus on both risks and strengths as vital components in a cogent view of health. Contributors present gender aspects of girls’ and women’s development in terms of internal and external vulnerabilities and risks and in terms of the protective or supportive factors that facilitate effective coping, positive growth, strength, and resilience.
