This study focuses on punk-identified girls living on their own in
San Francisco. While unraveling the complex social constructions of
gender, poverty, hair color, and the social production of space in an
urban environment, the study argues that young women make competent
decisions in the face of dominant moralistic policies which
criminalize their sexuality, independence, and spatial choices to
sleep in abandoned buildings or on the streets.
