  Women and Drinking 30 December 2003  
Did you drink a little bit too much over Christmas?

Reports show that, on average, young women are drinking as much as 5 bottles of wine a week.

Is this a cause for concern or are women simply behaving just like their male counterparts? Betsy Thom of Middlesex University and Geethika Jayatilaka, Director of Policy at Alcohol Concern, join Jenni to discuss whether our concerns about women drinking are more to do with social stigma than health.
