> also of interest, women fighting in general.

The opening of Fuller's 'Naked Kiss' (woman/man, not woman/woman, but amazing as filmmaking and gender representation)

several with women in fight competition:
The Next Karate Kid
Girl Fight
Million Dollar Baby

The whole 'babe's kick ass' subgenre of action movies (and TV). Most of these have the women fighting men or non-human creatures, rather than other women. (I'm sure there are scenes of woman/woman combat in the genre, though none come immediately to mind...)
The 'Buffyverse'
The Resident Evil franchise
Dark Angel (TV)
Transporter II
Salt, Tomb Raider, Mr. and Mrs. Smith... Angelina Jolie movies in general
etc., etc.,

I'm assuming when you said 'young girls' (which I would take to mean elementary school age) you meant 'young women' (adolescents) c.f. the real-life incidents of hazing and beatings in roughly the 13-17 age bracket. But I can't think of any examples of either off the top of my head... (Is there a fight scene in 'Girl Interupted'? I don't remember...)
