THE #3 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives

Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued.

If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman.

Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It 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.

From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women.

Award-winning campaigner and writer 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 impact this has on their health and well-being. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew.

'HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things – a monumental piece of research' Caitlin Moran

Review:

"Revelatory – it should be required reading for policy and decision makers everywhere" (Nicola Sturgeon)

"HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things – a monumental piece of research" (Caitlin Moran)

"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)

"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)

"Invisible Women is a game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts, sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly...the ambition and scope – and sheer originality – of Invisible Women is huge; no less than the story of what happens when we forget to account for half of humanity. It should be on every policymaker, politician and manager’s shelves" (Melanie Reid The Times)
