Tobacco and women

(p.323) Chapter 18 Tobacco and women

Amanda Amos

Judith Mackay

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a review of global trends in women and smoking. It then discusses the health effects of tobacco use, the economic impact of tobacco use on women, smoking cessation among women, and the marketing of tobacco to women. At the beginning of the 20th century few people could have imagined how such a stigmatized behaviour as female smoking would be transformed, through judicious marketing by the tobacco companies, into a socially acceptable and desirable behaviour in high-income countries. The challenge facing us in the 21st century is to how stem the second wave of the tobacco epidemic, particularly in low- and middle-income countries and among disadvantaged women in high-income countries.

Keywords:   smoking behaviour, cigarette smoking, women smokers, tobacco habit, female smoking
