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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Important book on the gender data gap

Amazing how in a data driven world there is still so little data on women.

Absolute Empfehlung, nicht nur für Frauen

Perez veranschaulicht erschreckend logisch die mal mehr, mal weniger negativen Auswirkungen der Geschlechterdatenlücke für Frauen und der strukturellen Nichtberücksichtigung des weiblichen Geschlechts in so vielen (unerwarteten) gesellschaftlichen Bereichen.

eye opening

New aspects, I as a feminist, have never thought of! A must-listen for everyone who wants to educate themselves on our society and half the population.

Love it!

This book is a must read to understand inequalities and the gender gap! Informative and critical - based in concrete research and going to the roots of data bias.

Essential reading/listening!

This book was long overdue and is a real eye-opener for any policy-maker, humanist, feminist, person! In meticulous detail, the author has researched a wide range of topics to illustrate the missing data when it comes to half the population. All statements and examples are underpinned by sound evidence from a widre range of sources across the globe. It s still easy to follow and her writing style is not dry at all as one might expect with such a topic. Absolutely recommendable!! It‘ll be on the shopping list for many birthdays to come for both women & men :)

Important, enraging, necessary book

This is one of the most enraging, powerful books I've read in a long time. This close look at the data cannot fail to make you or anyone a feminist

Absolutely amazing

The book contains incredible amounts of extremely important data, as well as glaring lacks thereof.

An essential read/listen for all

Brilliant book! and not just for feminists or people interested in gender politics. Have recommended it to so many people. Covers topics such as design, urban planning, technological innovation, & politics to shine a light on how gender bias affects us in ways we don't realise and how it affects the economy & society as a whole. Easy to listen to and good quality production.

great thesis, poor execution.

a very important and fascinating topic marred by jump-cut anecdotes, some factual errors and poor contextualisation.
