Bowker, Lee H.; Klein, Malcolm W.
Adolescence, v18 n72 p739-51 Win 1983
Examined female delinquency and gang membership in 122 black female juveniles using data from the 1960s. Concluded that racism, sexism, poverty, and limited opportunity are more important predictors of delinquency than personality and family relationships. Relationships with girl friends were more significant predictors than heterosexual relationships. (JAC)
