CAN GIRLS BE BULLIES?

When we hear the word “bully”, a distinct male image comes to mind. But girls and women too can resort to bullying. Priyanka Chopra had once said that students in her school abroad had hurled insults at her like, ‘Brownie, go back to your country!’ and ‘Go back on the elephant you came on.’ “I think it was just girls who, at that age, want to say something that’ll hurt,” the actress had said. “The style of bullying may differ between the two genders, with one resorting to more overt aggression and physical abuse while other prefers gossip, spreading rumours, ostracizing, passive aggression,” says Dr Era Dutta, Consultant Psychiatrist, Therapist, Wellness expert, Founder- Mind Wellness.
