Basic Black Live: Teenage girls and violence

April 13, 2013

Some very high-profile crimes, including the stabbing of a mother pushing her baby in a stroller, have heightened the awareness of young girls as perpetrators of violence; this within the month of April, which is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month and we're at the end of International Anti-Harassment Week.  This week on Basic Black, our conversation will look at young women on both ends of the spectrum of violence.
