Abstract:

Have girls really gone wild? Despite the media fascination with "bad girls," facts beyond the hype have remained unclear. Fighting for Girls focuses on these facts, and using the best data available about actual trends in girls' uses of violence, the scholars here find that by virtually any measure, incidents of girls violence are going down, not up. Additionally, rather than attributing gril's violence to personality or to girls becoming more like boys, the contributors examine the contexts that produce violence in girls, demonstrating how addressing the unique problems that confront girls in dating relationships, families, school hallways and classrooms, and in distressed urban neighborhoods can help reduce girls' use of violence. Often including girls' own voices, contributors illustrate why girls use violence in certain situations, encouraging us to pay attention to trauma in the girls pasts, as well as how violence becomes a tool for surviving toxic families, deteriorated neighborhoods, and neglectful schools. --

"From a broad range of perspectives and empirical studies, this book addresses a number of important questions central to the study of girls and violence."-Sara Goodkind, University of Pittsburg --

Meda Chesney-Lind is Professor of Women's Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. --

Nikki Jones is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. --Book Jacket.
