About Alcoholism - Alcoholism Information, Research and Treatment

Why Women Drink

This department reports items of interest in the field of alcoholism outside AA. Many of these items are contrary to AA philosophy. Their publication here does not mean that the Grapevine endorses or approves them; they are offered solely for your information.

Alcoholism among women is related to changing attitudes about the status of women in society, [according to] Dr. Edith Gomberg, who teaches a course in alcohol usage and problems at the University of Michigan School of Social Work and is on the staff of the Rutgers University School of Alcohol Studies.
