The attitudes of independence, aggressiveness, and equality have created females attraction to gang environment. Young girls who are being drawn to join gangs are mostly being excluded from society –isolation from social institutions because of their class, sex, race or ethnicity. These girls have a history of family problems, family abuse, and broken mother-to-daughter relation. The gang is for both male and females seen as a family structure and the members thus feel social support and protection by joining the crew. The Paper would describe the risk factors and consequences of female gang membership and give a potential programs which could potentially help its members find support and have a free-gang lifestyle.
