Traces the short history of women's smoking, presents information and interpretation of trends and offers possible explanations of women's smoking. This action handbook is a guide to help groups and agencies understand women's tobacco use. It can be a source of information, a guide to action, or an aid in cessation programming. By exploring the idea that women's tobacco use is related to women's experience, it presents a fresh perspective on the issue.
