Abstract

Cigarette smoking among African-Caribbean young women in Britain has been under-researched. Seven focus groups were conducted with young African-Caribbean women in the UK to collect qualitative data on factors which influence smoking behaviour and the meaning that smoking has for this group of young women. This paper reports on the process of conducting qualitative research with diverse population in schools exploring how gender, ethnicity and class are expressed through cigarette smoking.
