9780151006045: Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls

When boys bully it's a physical thing. When girls bully it is often more subtle - the dirty looks, the taunting notes, or the exclusion from the group...In Odd Girl Out, Rachel Simmons focuses on these interactions and provides language for the indirect aggression that runs through the lives of girls. These exchanges take place within intimate circles - the importance of friends and the fear of losing them being the key. Without the cultural consent to express their anger or to resolve their conflicts, girls express their aggression in covert but often deeply damaging ways.

Review:

Praise for ODD GIRL OUT "There has not been so much interest in young females since psychologist Mary Pipher chronicled anorexics and suicide victims in her 1994 bestseller, "Reviving Ophelia.""--"The Washington Post" "Provocative . . . Cathartic to any teen or parent trying to find company . . . it will sound depressingly familiar to any girl with a pulse."--"Detroit Free Press" "Encourages girls to address one another when they feel angry or jealous, rather than engage in the rumor mill."--"Chicago Tribune" "Peels away the smiley surfaces of adolescent female society to expose one of girlhood's dark secrets: the vicious psychological warfare waged every day in the halls of our . . . schools."--"San Francisco Chronicle "
