Girls Online Feeling Out of Bounds: Girl Scout Research Institute Study on Teenage Girls and the Internet.
Dewey, Lisa
Camping Magazine, v75 n5 p48-50 Sep-Oct 2002
A study of girls' Internet usage collected data from 1,246 girls aged 13-18 via focus groups, personal journals, and surveys. Many girls didn't know how to react to situations like pornography or sexual harassment in chat room conversations. Girls wanted proactive involvement from adults, not just prohibitive advice, on navigating the Internet. Implications for camps are discussed. (TD)
