World No Tobacco Day : Call to ban smoking in outdoor dining and drinking areas good for women

On World No Tobacco Day on 31 May 2013, Women’s Health Victoria is calling for a ban on smoking in outdoor drinking and dining areas. The Victorian Government recently announced that they are considering further outdoor smoking bans, but the proposals do not include outdoor dining or drinking areas. Policies that limit opportunities to smoke in such areas will be particularly effective in deterring young women from smoking.
