Girls' violence on the rise
Date:9/23/2009

y and mobile phones with a passion and evidence shows girls are more likely to use these to bully.

"These technologies massively inflame conflict between girls. Increasingly, girls are bashing other girls, and videos of these are being put onto YouTube.

"Bullying used to end at the end of school, but now it follows you home and can escalate over night."

Professor Carrington said a long-standing reluctance to accept increasing violence between girls meant there were few specific programs to address it.

"The majority of rehabilitation programs focus on boys' delinquencies which may not be as effective in dealing with violent girls," she said.

Professor Carrington said from 1960 to 2007, the ratio of young women to young men appearing before the NSW Children's Courts for criminal matters has narrowed from 1 in 14 to1 in 5, and girls continued to narrow the gap in violent crime.

"Boys' crime rates are falling in overall terms, but within that, rates of sexual violence are of an increasing concern," she said.

Girls' crime rates are increasing overall and girls' violence, usually directed towards other girls, is increasing."
