Summary
Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this bias in time, money, and often with their lives.

Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates the shocking root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.

One of the best books I’ve read. The author shows through data (or lack of) how bias is built into our systems.

Absolutely loved the information here. So eye opening! It’s crazy all the little things you don’t think about that lead to inequity for women.

A thought provoking book which was extremely well-written and informed. I would encourage everyone to read this book as it has implications for us all.

Very informative book. Narration was clear, not to fast or to slow.
