Studied the status of girls in the juvenile justice system, focusing on the out-of-home placement unit of San Francisco's (California) Juvenile Probation Department. Interviews with staff members and 10 adolescents in the system show many problems with the system, which was largely designed to work with male offenders. (SLD)
