From the Back Cover:

Conventional wisdom states that men express their aggressionthrough physical violence, while women do so in less direct andmore nuanced ways. Female aggression is often ignored by mainstreamsocial and medical commentators, and writings on the topic seem toview aggression by women or girls as either a pale imitation ofmale aggression or specific to certain situations, such as alcoholabuse or domestic violence. Yet viewing female belligerence aspoorly expressed imitative behaviour minimises and trivialiseswomen’s anger, perspectives and viewpoints. This study offemale aggression makes a critical assessment of this position, andexplores ideas about female aggression, its motives and outcomes.In doing so, it explodes a number of social myths about gender.

This thorough, holistic review takes theoretical positions drawnfrom a range of scientific perspectives as its starting point, thenexplores how women experience and express their aggression,including through sexual assault and murder. In doing so,aggressive female behaviour is acknowledged, in its own right, asan issue that requires examination by researchers.
