This chapter considers sociocultural influence on grief reactions using the feminist ecological model as a guiding framework. Specifically, it considers interpersonal influences and social constraints at the level of the microsystem, legislation/policy and religion at the level of the exosystem, and capitalism and Western values, and the media at the level of the macrosystem. In addition, the intersecting dimensions of gender and race/ethnicity are discussed.
