Research shows that girls participate in bullying as much or more than boys. However, this girl bullying takes a form very different from the pushing, fighting, hitting, yelling, boasting easily observed form that boys exhibit. Girls are more likely to participate in bullying typified by telling secrets behind each others' backs, group exclusion, and turning group members against each other--namely alternative aggressions. For this project, we researched girl bullying by reviewing topic-related literature and by conducting a survey of middle school students in the Chippewa Valley.
