Imagine a world where...
· Your phone is too big for your hand
· Your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body
· In a car accident you are 47% more likely to be injured.

If any of that sounds familiar, chances are you're a woman.

From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, and the media. Invisible Women reveals how in a world built for and by men we are systematically ignoring half of the population, often with disastrous consequences. Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the profound impact this has on us all.

Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives.

I regret the purchase of the book, having realised only too late that the author had an extremely narrow idea of gender, an outdated concept of biology and an extremely binary approach to both - thus, while attempting to show narrow minded views discriminating through the ages, in the end succumbing to as restricted thinking herself; throwing everyone not fitting her definitions, as well as intersectionality as a whole, under the bus. Disappointing.
