Additional Information: This paper offers an original contribution to debates on girls’ aggression and bullying, tracing the regulation of girlhood in contemporary culture and media and the construction of new categories of feminine pathology like the ‘mean’ girl. It is significant in offering an analysis of international trends in media outputs on the issue. It also gives a sociological critique of a psychological discourse of girls’ indirect and relational aggression. It is based on a research study funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Copyright © 2006 by SAGE Publications
