Abstract

Over the past two decades, bullying has received a lot of negative attention, with educators, parents, and youths expressing concerns regarding bullying at schools. However, bullying also occurs outside of schools, and the internet provides a platform that allows bullying to extend beyond the traditional school day. Scholars identify this form of bullying as cyberbullying. Research regarding the relationship between gender and cyberbullying remains unclear. Therefore, using an interdisciplinary approach, this chapter examines gender differences in cyberbullying. Merging theoretical insights from criminology, sociology, and gender studies, this chapter explores how male and female youths utilize the internet to engage in cyberbullying. This chapter also considers the implications of gender differences in cyberbullying for future research and policy development.
