Explores female gang affiliation in Winnipeg through interviews with representatives of different agencies in Manitoba whose job involves intervening in the lives of gang women. Suggests that female gang members typically come for poor socioeconomic backgrounds, survive "dysfunctional" childhoods, have suffered extensive abuse, live in deteriorating inner-city areas, and are predominantly Aboriginal - that is to say, from a marginalized ethnic group. Concludes that female gang members have been largely overlooked in gang research and in prevention and intervention programming.
