Boys Call Me Cow.

Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p22-25 Oct 1997
A 1992-95 survey of over 1,000 Long Island, New York, students attending eight middle, junior, and high schools found that most peer harassment focused on verbal assaults. Although there was more harassment by boys, both sexes harassed their peers, mostly by name calling. The main targets were unattractive or unstylish girls, physically mature girls, and boys not fitting the male stereotype. Ameliorative strategies are suggested. (MLH)
