This book examines the relationship between violence and gender in youth cultures. The countries being investigated are Russia, France, the UK, Sweden, Finland, Spain and Mexico. This publication concerns gendered violence in public spaces. The authors ask how gendered violence in youth cultures is in diverse societal contexts, what forms and interpretations of masculinities are built in youth cultures, and how young people themselves and the society around them relate to these masculinities. The authors also pose the question, are there culturally approved violent femininities as well, and what are they like in different societies.
