It's a shame about RAE

The major difference between genders is that for girls, holding social knowledge equates to holding social power as a means of manipulating their peers


both girls and boys rate social aggression and covert bullying as worse than physical aggression and bullying [146; 205], and studies have shown it to be strongly linked to depression [122], anxiety [149] and low self-esteem [221] in both genders.

‘Cyber bullying’ has been described as a particularly damaging form of psychological covert aggression that involves “….

the use of information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behaviour by an individual or group, that is intended to harm others…” [99],
