Gender Differences in Young Adolescents' Experiences of Peer Victimization: Social and Physical Aggression.
Paquette, Julie A.; Underwood, Marion K.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v45 n2 p242-66 Apr 1999
This study explored gender differences in social and physical aggression experienced by adolescents. Personal reports and self-perception profiles revealed that the most common social aggression was gossip. Both genders reported equal frequencies of social aggression, but girls were more distressed by it than boys. Frequency of social aggression was more strongly related to girls' self-concepts than to boys' self-concepts. (TJQ)
