Are there differences in the bullying experiences of girls and boys?

An English study of bullying in 25 secondary schools found little difference in the number of boys and girls physically bullying others. There was a greater difference in the way girls and boys responded to being bullied. It was found that girls were less likely to retaliate and became victims while boys tended to hit back. Girls were less violent in their physical bullying but when they did fight it tended to be very serious. The study found that after the age of 14 the level of physical bullying fell for both boys and girls.
