Drugs, Women, and the Media (with Jenny Valentish)

Hi everyone! This week Elle is joined with Jenny Valentish, the author of Woman of Substances! Together they find out What’s the Crack with her new book, the media’s representation of women and drugs, the language used by the media, and more!

So, what was Jenny’s experience with the media? Why does the media love a rock bottom to redemption story? Why do menstrual cycles leave women out of research? And why does the media love the word “addict”?
