From the Guardian:  a new study seems to indicate that British girls are among the most violent in the world.  England and Scotland came fifth and sixth in a table showing level of violence among 11 -- 15-year-old girls in 35 developed countries.  In both England and Scotland, 29% of the girls had been in at least one physcial fight in the previous year.  The worst-scoring country, Hungary, was not far ahead at 32%.

The study of 161,000 students showed that even though boys were more violent overall than girls, English schoolboys weren't nearly as violent as their female counterparts.

Dang.  Those English schoolboys better watch their backs.
