Girls' Violence: Myths and Realities
Christine Alder, Anne Worrall
SUNY Press, Aug 3, 2004 - Social Science - 212 pages
This critical collection brings together some of the best contemporary research on the perceived increase in girls’ violence. With perspectives from the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom, the work challenges official definitions and media representations of girls and violence. Contributors discuss whether violence by girls has actually increased, what kind of behavior by girls is classified as “violent,” how attitudes toward girls’ behavior have changed, in what contexts girls behave violently, and look at the links between girls’ violence and the broader issues of the social construction and social control of adolescent femininities. With diverse essays representing different geographical and disciplinary perspectives, this book offers, at times, contradictory evidence and conflicting views. However, common concerns are clear and the reader is rewarded with a rich exploration of the struggles of girls and young women to take control of their lives in material and ideological conditions that continue to restrict their options and opportunities.
