Drug Stigma Hardest On Women, Says Book By Uvic Professor

Susan Boyd
Mark Browne

Women have been getting a particularly bad deal in the war on drugs, according to a new book by a University of Victoria professor. Susan Boyd's From Witches to Crack Moms is a call for the end to the war on drugs which emphasises on the impact it has historically had on women.

The drug policy researcher and professor in UVic’s human and social development faculty looked at where women fit in various drug wars throughout history while writing her latest book. Much of the book’s focus is on whether men were seen different than women in the different drug wars.
