This article presents some key findings from an exploratory study of teenage girls' views and experiences of violence, carried out in Scotland. Using data gathered from self-report questionnaires, focus group discussions and in-depth interviews, it conveys girls' perceptions of violence and discusses the nature and extent of the many forms of violence in girls' lives. In particular, the article flags up the pervasiveness of verbal conflicts within girls' lives and outlines the characteristics of those girls who describe themselves as violent. It concludes with a brief discussion of practice and policy implications.
