Rape, gang weapon of choice.

The BBC covered the story here

Having experienced working with marginalized young people in the past, I am acutely aware that the issues around gang culture and youth crime are a hot potato for councils, youth workers and governing bodies. The prospects of addressing gender-specific issues within that complex culture rarely make in onto  the radar. It is good to see the issue of young women's sexual vulnerability in gang culture raised here.
