We take up the subject of peer and school-based culture for teens in chapter four, where we outline at the femininity norms confronting female teens. In this chapter we note that notions of femininity were complicated and sometimes contradictory. In this way, girls’ violence is viewed against the backdrop of multiple constraints and contradictions.

Keywords:   Girlhood, Feminist Theory, Girls’ Violence, Gendered Violence, Patriarchy, Hegemonic Femininity, Sexual Double Standards
