Female drunken crime increases

Violent attacks by binge-drinking teenage girls have risen by nearly 300 per cent in seven years in a frightening wave of ‘ladette’ violence. And while more and more teenage girls are going on the rampage, criminal behaviour by teenage boys is on the decrease.

Maybe young girls feel invinsible: that they can do whatever they like, and they are unlikely to get as seriously punnished for it as a man would be. An example of this is the horrific attack on a young man's face with a broken bottle that one young drunk woman carried out, and will probably only serve about a year in jail for.
