Investing in Girls: A 21st Century  Strategy
by Leslie Acoca          ........................................  .......... 3
Victimization is consistently identified as the first step along a girl's pathway into the
juvenile justice system. Addressing the needs of adolescent girls, who now make up
the fastest growing segment of the juvenile justice system, offers the Nation its best
hope of halting the intergenerational cycle of family fragmentation and crime.
