Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez

An exciting and ground-breaking work of journalism and activism about women, and the systemic discrimination caused by a data gap that affects half the population – from an award-winning writer and feminist campaigner, who got a woman on our banknotes and a statue of Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square

You've heard all about the Gender Pay Gap... Welcome to the Gender Data Gap.
Our world is largely built for and by men, in a system that can ignore half the population. This book will tell you how and why this matters

In her new book, Invisible Women, award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. She 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.

Caroline 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 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.

About the Author

Caroline Criado Perez is a writer, broadcaster and public speaker. She writes across the major national media, most regularly for the New Statesman and the Guardian, and appears in both print and broadcast as a commentator. Her first book, Do it Like a Woman, was published by Portobello in 2015. Eleanor Marx hailed it in the New Statesman as ‘an extended and immersive piece of investigative journalism,’ while Bridget Christie chose it as one of her books of the year in the Guardian, declaring that ‘young girls and women everywhere should have a copy.’

Criado Perez is also an award-winning feminist campaigner. Her most notable campaigns have included co-founding The Women’s Room, getting a woman on Bank of England banknotes, forcing Twitter to revise its procedures for dealing with abuse and successfully campaigning for a statue of suffragist Millicent Fawcett to be erected in Parliament Square. She was the 2013 recipient of the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year award, and was named an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015. She lives in London.
