    The thesis describes violence among girls and compares the violence among girls in the 5th grade and the ones in the 9th grade. In the theoretical part the era of adolescence is stressed out and the characteristics and adolescent’s emotional and social development are described. Next is a subchapter where the difference between the sexes is described. The next subject is violence to which a whole chapter is dedicated and it includes the definition of violence, peer violence and the description of violence forms. The subject, also important in this chapter, is the researches about the violence among girls and it’s distinctive forms. The last subchapter poses a question of what a school can do in connection with violence. Empirical part represents the analysis of information about violence occurrence among girls based on a quantitative research. I gathered information with the help of questionnaires that were answered by 208 girls in 5th and 9th grades from 5 elementary schools in Maribor. I found out that among girls in the 5th grade the most common form of violence is to ignore someone and among girls in the 9th grade the most common form is spreading false rumours. Violence among girls happens mostly in school. Girls from lower grades get bullied in the classroom and girls from higher grades in the hallways. Most of the girls from both grades are willing to talk about violence, the only difference is to whom they would tell about it. Girls from the 5th grade would tell it to their parents and girls from the 9th grade to a schoolmate.
