There has historically been a tendency to group girls and young women’s offending and risk taking behaviours alongside those of boys and young men. As a consequence, responses to offending and risk taking behaviours tend to be derived from the principles of “What Works?” which stem from theories of male offending and often do not fully meet the needs of females.
