dc.description.abstract This study attempted to examine gender stereotypes against female adolescents and how these stereotypes could make girls vulnerable to HIVIAIDS in terms of access to information, discussion hold with parents and partners, decision making and taking initiatives on mailers relating to sexuality and HIVIAIDS A sample of 343 female students of ages 14 to 20 years were drawn from two high schools in the Yeka Sub-city Administration. A pilot- tested questionnaire and focus group discussions were used to solicit data from these participants. The finding generally suggested that there were many gender stereotypes against females, and that these stereotypes seemed to limit girls' efforts for an access to information relating to sexuality and HIVIAIDS The gender stereotypes also seemed to limit the type and extent of discussions the girls had with their parents and their partners as well. More over, the participants also reported to have lesser involvement in decision making and taking initiatives on the very issues that directly affect their sexuality and vulnerability to HIVIAIDS As an after math, they apparently appeared vulnerable to H1VIAIDS Discussions were made based on these findings, and recommendations were finally given to reduce the vulnerability of these female adolescents en_US
