In addition to sharing that alcohol marketing targets women, Goodhart also noted that women’s biological makeup and hormones mean they’re “significantly” more susceptible to developing an alcohol use disorder at a faster rate than men.

“Between the pandemic and the pressures of daily life, we need to find realistic ways to cope and prioritize wellness. Women are caught in a perfect storm when it comes to alcohol because we are the target of millions of marketing dollars that peg alcohol as the catch-all solution for our anxiety, stress, and even underlying trauma.”
