U.K.: Teenage Girls – Violence by Feuds, Drink and Jealousy

Freitag 27. November 2009 von htm

„A UK-wide survey by the group of 14- to 21-year-olds found that one in three girls and one in two boys thought there were circumstances in which it could be acceptable to hit a woman or force her to have sex. While young women aged 16 to 24 still have the highest risk of becoming victims of aggressive crime in this country, recent statistics show that there has been a significant rise in the numbers turning to violence themselves. Youth Justice Board figures for last year show that, while overall crime rates are falling, there is a 50% rise in violent crime committed by young women. From 2004-5 to 2007-8, there was a 71% rise in the numbers of young women being electronically tagged and a 25% rise in offences committed by girls aged 10 to 17. It means girls are now responsible for around 21% of offences that reach the courts.“ (Source: Harvard World Health News, 11/25/09) The Observer, London, 11/22/09 Related story: Labour Cracks Down on Teenage Violence (The Observer, London, November 22, 2009)
