8 Ball Chicks: A Year in the Violent World of Girl Gangs - Sikes, Gini

Dismissed by the police as mere adjuncts to or gofers for male gangs, girl gang-bangers are in fact often as emotionally closed off and dangerous as their male counterparts. In "8 Ball Chicks", veteran journalist Gini Sikes spends a year in the ghettos following girl gangs in South Central Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Milwaukee.
