Summary
In a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. Criado-Perez exposes the gender data gap - a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, and that has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women's lives. Criado-Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrates the hidden ways in which women are excluded from the very building blocks of the world we live in, and the impact this has on their health and wellbeing. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, "Invisible Women" exposes the biased data that excludes women. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew
