Risk Behaviors among Young Mexican American Gang-Associated Females: Sexual Relations, Partying, Substance Use, and Crime.
Cepeda, Alice; Valdez, Avelardo
Journal of Adolescent Research, v18 n1 p90-106 Jan 2003
This qualitative research examined risk-taking behavior among Mexican American adolescent girls who are not formal gang members but are associated with male gangs. Findings illustrate how outcomes associated with sexual relations, partying, substance use, and crime vary according to the girl's relationship with the male gang and status within the community. Regardless of relationship, participation in these activities resulted in different degrees of negative outcomes. (Author/KB)
