WHAT ABOUT THE GIRLS?

A great deal has been written about boys who, as members of street gangs, flout the law and make a mockery of civilised rules of behavior. But what about the girls? How large a part is played by them in the spreading sickness called juvenile delinquency?

Unfortunately the girls, who had until recently been satisfied to play a subordinate role in gangdom, are now taking off on their own, stealing, fighting, gouging and killing-all for glory, revenge and kicks.

Here is a comprehensive study of this new development, a case-history account of girls "gone wrong," of teen-agers who resort to prostitution, alcohol and dope-anything that will implement their rebellion and give them status in their own crime-infested, immoral world.
