Girls constitute the largest growing segment of the juvenile justice system and now account for nearly one-third of all juvenile arrests in the United States. Are girls in the juvenile justice system treated differently than similarly situated boys, and are girls of color treated much differently than white girls?

Girls of color are 2.7 times more likely than their white counterparts to be referred to the legal system, 20 percent more likely to be formally petitioned and 1.2 times more likely to be detained than white girls.
