This book makes a number of interesting points. Historically, Greaves shows how, throughout the twentieth century, cigarette smoking has moved in and out of phase with liberationist imagery, variously associated with the feminine ideal and defiant assertiveness. She does not spare the tobacco industry in their unconcern for women's health: her most valuable point is that the gathering assault on Third World markets, especially in Asia, is only just starting to reproduce on a larger scale the damage left in the West by the post-war smoking epidemic.

Hence, smoking cessation for women will be an ongoing issue and requires refreshed attention. Women-centred approaches that include harm-reduction, motivational interviewing and trauma-informed elements are the new frontiers in interventions to encourage smoking cessation for women.

Smoke Screen : Women, Smoking and Identity. This book has expertly examined the sociological concepts of social control and tobacco.

Closet smoking includes any secretive smoking behaviour, whether a pack a day or one cigarette a month, says Dr. Peter Selby, chief of the addictions division at Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a Canadian leader in the area of smoking and addiction. They perceive smoking as control, freedom, independence,’ she says. It’s ironic, because it’s exactly the opposite. Smoking ends up controlling yo. The stigma against smoking becomes internalized, says Greaves, who is also a co-founder and past president of the International Network of Women Against Tobacco, and the author of Smoke Screen: Women’s Smoking and Social Control.

Smoking can help form and maintain identity, often in keeping with oppressive cultural images of women. Smoking can make women compliant and unhealthy, but tobacco industries continue to expand female markets across the world. Smoke Screen looks at the range of ways in which tobacco affects women; the evolution of cultural pressures on women's smoking; the meanings of smoking to women; the uses of smoking for women; the benefits for societies of keeping women smoking; and the impact of health and tobacco policy on women's smoking prevention and cessation.
