The Governance of Female Drug Users : Women's Experiences of Drug Policy Hardback
Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. This book is the first to examine how female drug user's identities, and hence their experiences, are shaped by drug policies.
It analyses how the subjectivities ascribed to women users within drug policy sustain them in their problematic use and reinforce their social exclusion.
Challenging popular misconceptions of female users, the book calls for the formulation of drug policies to be based on gender equity and social justice.
It will appeal to academics in the social sciences, practitioners and policy makers.
