KOTTIG, Michaela. The causes of violent actions by young women. Civitas, Rev. Ciênc. Soc. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.8-25. ISSN 1984-7289.  https://doi.org/10.15448/1984-7289.2016.1.24051.

The academic debate on female violence has always centred around issues such as differences in the violent behaviour of men and women, and how much violence is carried out by women. The reason for this focus lies in the historical development of the debate itself. Besides looking at the quantity and quality of female violence, this article is therefore also devoted to a discussion of the academic discourse as it has developed in Germany in the field of gender, and research results. Past research shows that there is a need to study the relationship between causes and effects, in other words the genesis of present violent behaviour. The biography of Jacky Mahler, which I will shortly present in this article, shows that present violent behaviour is closely bound up with historical causes.
