The Delinquent Girl

By Mrs. Julius Andrews

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), February 1, 1914

The author addresses the issue of girls who become pregnant as unmarried teenages, and who are institutionalized or ostracized as sex offenders. She argues that, from a justice perspective, courts must hold men and women equally responsible for these sex offenses, and from a social perspective, communities and especially the Jewish community must take proactive preventative measures to protect and nurture the morality of vulnerable girls. In Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities 1913-1914, Baltimore, Vol.IV:7, ed. Lee F. Frankel.
