Johnston, A. (2015). Commentary: Girls, women, and alcohol: Implications for alcohol policy. The International Journal Of Alcohol And Drug Research, 4(2), 101-102. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.7895/ijadr.v4i2.212

The new reality: while male consumption is constant or declining, female consumption is on the upswing.
