This chapter focuses mainly on the issues raised during the author's teaching media production workshops at a girls' reform institute in Japan in 2002. This public institution operates like a school, devoting part of the girls' time to a regular high school curriculum, but with more emphasis on discipline and conformity. The girls, who have committed diverse levels of offense, reside at the institute and are not allowed to leave it. The group selected by the institute to participate in the workshops in this chapter ranged in age from twelve to sixteen and consisted of girls considered the most “difficult”; they were not studying in the main curriculum and therefore had “spare” time to be in these workshops.

Keywords:   media production workshops, bad girls, juvenile delinquents, delinquency, Japan
