ACEs and women often go hand-in-hand. Women experience more trauma than men. These traumas too often mirror the experiences of a childhood fraught with the same. ACEs are Adverse Childhood Experiences that put all of us at risk, particularly women of color.
Studies confirm that women of color experience racism, sexism, regular harassment, and assault. Black women are particularly affected by these daily experiences and experience great stress as a result. These traumas are not new and too often mirror the experiences of a childhood fraught with the same.
