Bay Area Skeptics SkepTalk - Stacey Anderson, Ph.D.: "Lull the Ladies with Lies"

SkepTalk: Berkeley

WHAT: " Lull the Ladies with Lies: How the Tobacco Industry Gets and Keeps Women as Smokers"

All of us know that tobacco advertisers prey on people. We even know that "light" cigarettes are a total joke. Tonight we'll hear the history of cigarette advertising targeting women and see how women are still so important to the tobacco industry. Bogus health claims abound even now in advertising, and some evidence-based policy options for public health will be considered. Your input is very welcome.

WHO: Dr. Stacey Anderson

Graduated summa cum laude from UC Santa Cruz and went on to UC Davis to study gender stereotyping. Her research at UCD brought her to UC San Francisco where she has been studying the tobacco industry's interest in various female populations both here and world-wide for the last decade plus. And yes, she is perturbed.

WHEN: 7:30PM Thursday 13 March (2nd Thursday)

WHERE: La Peña Cultural Center, 3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, a 6-minute walk from the Ashby BART station. [Click for Map]

HOW: Presented as a FREE public service by Bay Area Skeptics.

WHY: Because we are curious creatures.
