In doing so, to the findings from this study will hopefully challenge the traditional thinking about female aggression and violence derived primarily from research about males and their behaviors. The study was used to examine girls' attitudes, perceptions, and experiences of aggressive and violent behaviors to understand their motivation, in order to identify interventions to address the behaviors. Educational implications for teachers and school administrators were discussed with an emphasis on the need to promote a greater understanding of female aggression and violence, in order to develop effective approaches that address the issue.
