Results of a research project examining the representation of women and smoking in four media, including women's magazines, newspapers, films, and TV, between 1989 and 1994. Reveals that images of tobacco and smoking are present in media consumed by young girls and women. Also suggests that media does not portray women as independent or making healthy choices. Combined, these facts make it more difficult for girls and young women to avoid tobacco and make healthy lifestyle choices. Concludes by recommeding that young women be taught media literacy, and that anti-tobacco education and health promotion be developed that is addressed towards girls and young women.
