    ~ 8 Ball Chicks ~
    One of the Equal Means Equal filmmakers, journalist Gini Sikes, spent a year living in the violent world of female gang members in Los Angeles, San Antonio and Milwaukee for her book "8 Ball Chicks". "I began this book in fear, but I ended it in hope. I liked these girls. Many of them, despite great adversity, chose not to become the career criminals maligned in the media. They left gangs through the sheer force of their own will. They were a constant source of inspiration."
