    Marie Claire asks what's wrong with a couple of glasses of wine

Three advertising agencies, Lowe Bull, Ogilvy Johannesburg and Draft FCB, showcase creative work demonstrating the negative effects that even moderate alcohol intake has on women.

    “Alcohol is physiologically far more dangerous for women than it is for men,” says Kate Wilson, the magazine's editor. “We invited the three agencies to design a campaign that would raise awareness of the risks involved and get women to think twice about having another glass.”

    Health-wise, women are more negatively affected by alcohol than men are. Women who drink alcohol increase their risk of developing breast cancer, suffering from infertility and are more likely to have a stroke due to alcohol consumption.
