A new publication, The Impact of Global Drug Policy on Women: Shifting the Needle​​, ​​analyzes the disproportionate impact of failed international drug control policies on women. Approaching these issues through a feminist lens that is often absent in the conventional literature, this new volume addresses the lack of attention to the experiences of women, detailing the challenges women face in accessing appropriate treatment and services, the stigmatization and marginalization resulting from engagement in illegal drug markets, and the punitive sentences imposed on women for drug-related offenses. Co-editors Julia Buxton, Giavana Margo, and Lona Burger have brought together a unique group of authors that includes academics, activists and those with lived experiences.
