Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
This study focuses on punk-identified girls living on their own in San Francisco. While unraveling the complex social constructions of gender, poverty, hair color, and the social production of space in an urban environment, the study argues that young women make competent decisions in the face of dominant moralistic policies which criminalize their sexuality, independence, and spatial choices to sleep in abandoned buildings or on the streets.
