Imagine a world where...
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.
Invisible Women takes on the neglected topic of what we don't know - and why. The result is a powerful, important and eye-opening analysis of the gender politics of knowledge and ignorance. With examples from technology to natural disasters, this is an original and timely reminder of why we need women in the leadership of the institutions that shape every aspect of our lives. -- Cordelia Fine
This book is a devastating indictment of institutionalised complacency and a rallying cry to fight back... Invisible Women should propel women into action. It should also be compulsory reading for men -- Christina Patterson - Sunday Times
Revelatory, frightening, hopeful. A secular Bible -- Jeanette Winterson
HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things - a monumental piece of research -- Caitlin Moran
Revelatory - it should be required reading for policy and decision-makers everywhere -- Nicola Sturgeon
