About this book


This book explores the need to place the issue of women and substance use firmly within a feminist context. Betsy Ettorre critically examines theories and practices with regard to the use of alcohol, prescribed drugs, heroin, cigarettes and food, and demonstrates their effects on women. Giving feminist awareness to man's political practice, she also presents an account of feminist action in this area.
