Gendered Moods by Elizabeth Ettorre

Book Description

Tranquillisers are prescribed to almost twice as many women as men, yet very little gender-based research has been carried out on the social context of their use. Gendered Moods offers the first feminist analysis of the gendered character of psychotropic drug use, based on studies of long-term psychotropic drug users and the content of drug advertising. The authors argue that gender differences in psychotropic drug use are manifestations of the gendered construction of society as a whole, and that, as a result, women are particularly susceptible to being channelled into a state of dependency on prescribed drugs. Exploring current social scientific debates relating to drug users and providers, Gendered Moods also provides a critical review of previous research. It is a much needed introduction to a neglected area of study.

Drinking alcohol can be pleasurable and life enhancing. On the other hand, it can be associated with danger and risk. This book explores some of the implications of this dichotomy, which creates many policy and practice dilemmas, by an exploration of the place of drinking in women's lives.
