Abstract

Description

Studies over the past 30 years have shown that female college students are less likely to drink and to get into problems with their drinking compared to male college students. However, they have been drinking more frequently and in greater quantities since the late l970s, compared to the l950s and l960s. During this present decade many women students have been found to exhibit abusive drinking patterns and alcohol related problems. Drinking has also been shown to be a contributing factor in rape and pregnancy. Women students are more likely than men to be put into circumstances where their date may be too intoxicated to safely drive them home. Suggestions for campus wide alcohol education programs for harm reduction among women students are given along with statistics concern drinking patterns.
