A recent British survey found that teenaged girls are now more likely than their male counterparts to drink, smoke, steal and use drugs. The so-called “ladette” culture of violence, aggression and self-destructive behavior has spread alarmingly over the past 20 years.
In part, it is blamed on increased psychological and social problems, as girls are now expected to compete on equal terms with boys for educational and employment opportunities.
Professor Colin Pritchard, who led the research, said, “Girls now significantly smoke and binge-drink more than boys. They [are] truant, steal and fight at similar rates, and start under-age sex earlier than boys.”
