Latina Teenagers: Victimization, Identity, and Fear of Crime

Esther Madriz pushes the analysis of victimization and fear of crime by focusing on Latina girls and young women, whose voices have not been heard in discussions of violence and crime. She relates fear of crime among Latina teenagers to their feelings of identity as immigrants.
