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.

Commentaires

"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)

Shed your ignorance, whether you’re male or female

If you are male or female and can’t wrap your mind around why women fight for more rights or attention, or why equal representation of the sexes is important to achieve and not just allow, this book will fill the gaps. The data, and the lack of data, that it points to leaves me overwhelmed at the lack of progress and systemic unconscious bias that has shaped my life and continues to shape all of our lives (yes even in progressive Sweden or Denmark). Read and shed your ignorance. Start to understand he role you can play in achieving equality, not just neutrality.

Bridging the gender data gap with too much data

The idea of the book is great. Many of the examples are very interesting, and many even surprise you "huh that is true!". However, the exhausting listing of examples drowns the line of thought, or then there's just too little thought to begin with. Out of the 8725 examples covered in this book, I'd keep maybe 2500 of the most interesting ones and replace the leftover space with reflection.

I started the book with high hopes to educate myself (and as a man with less personal experience) to realize the subtle ways the society still puts genders on different standing, but many chapters (especially the 45 minutes about toilets) left me wishing the reader would stop with anecdotes already and either offer some synthesis or move forward to another topic. I'm sure the point could've been driven home with fewer well chosen anecdotes.

The author did excellent job collecting all these examples, but narrative took a hit under the sheer amount of them. I'd recommend listening to a sample to see if you think you can get through this, or split the listening over a longer time period.

It opened my eyes

There's so much data that we ignore even as females, this book is great for understanding inequality.

Wonderful but slow

I found it extremely eye opening not just as a member of society but also as a student. I found myself talking pages and pages of notes. My only complaint would be that it is a bit slow.
Lovely work, wonderful references, excellent author.

It takes sometime to get used narrative

Specially if you don’t read data based books (like me). But once you do, you’ll get a headache... A much needed headache.

What you can't see

Another book about data. As all great books about data do, it shows you obvious things you've not been looking at.

Fascinating and infuriating

An enthralling look into gender bias in statics. Way more entertaining than that sounds.

El libro que todo mundo debe leer

No soy la misma después de leer este libro. Caroline hace un trabajo magnífico evidenciando la desigualdad que existe actualmente en el mundo comenzando por la falta de datos y estadísticas sólidas. El mejor libro que leí en 2019

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

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.
