Call in to speak with the host
We are thrilled to have a Special Guest, Ann Dowsett Johnston, author of "Drink, The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol" on our show!
While women over the past few decades have been closing the gender gap in their professional and educational lives, they are achieving parity with men in rates of alcoholism with alarming momentum--in the U.S., rates of alcoholism among women have risen more than 50 percent in the past decade.
Johnston illuminates this startling epidemic, dissecting the psychological, social, and industry factors that have contributed to its rise, and exploring its long-lasting impact on our society and individual lives.
Drink is groundbreaking and EVERY woman - whether she struggles with alcohol or not - should read this book.
It's good to talk.
