AbstractJohnston, A. (2015). Commentary: Girls, women, and alcohol: Implications for alcohol policy. The International Journal Of Alcohol And Drug Research, 4(2), 101-102. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.7895/ijadr.v4i2.212
Alcohol abuse is rising in much of the developed world, and in many countries, female drinkers are responsible for this growth. This is a global issue: the richer the country, the fewer abstainers and the smaller the gap between male and female behaviour. The new reality: while male consumption is constant or declining, female consumption is on the upswing.
