Wincup, Emma (2019) Women as vulnerable subjects: a gendered reading of the English and Irish drug strategies. Addictive Behaviors , 98 , p. 105995.


Highlights

  • Both strategies use vulnerability to understand women's pathways into/out of drugs.
  • The UK strategy concentrates on ‘victimized’ women who are vulnerable to drug use.
  • The Irish strategy focuses on women's continuing drug use due poor service provision.
  • Both strategies fall short of a gender-responsive approach to drug policy.
  • Gender mainstreaming is needed to develop more inclusive drug policies.
