Welcome to the 'Girls and Violence' home page. This site grew out of
the "A View from the Girls" research project, currently being conducted at the
University of Glasgow, Scotland. The project
is a study of girls and their views about violence and violent behaviour, and
is part of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Research Programme on Violence (VRP).
The research seeks to explore girls' views and experiences of
violence, both as observers, victims and/or perpetrators. In doing so it
examines the extent to which girls are involved in violence, the types and
forms of violence in which they engage, and how these may differ across
locales, settings and contexts. It also considers the social, situational,
individual and experiential factors that affect girls' decisions to act
violently (and avoid or desist from violence).
