Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this bias in time, money, and often with their lives.

Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates the shocking root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.

Caroline Criado Perez is a writer, broadcaster, and feminist activist and was named Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year and OBE by the Queen. She has a degree in English language and literature from the University of Oxford, and she studied behavioral and feminist economics at the London School of Economics. She lives in London.

Reviews

“The thoroughness of Invisible Women doesn’t detract from its absolute readability. This is entertaining, scholarly, and so very important.”

“Invisible Women is a game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts, sad, mad, bad, and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly.”

“Brilliant…Invisible Women lays out in impressive detail the many ways that human beings are presumed to be male, as well as the wide-reaching effects of this distorted view of humanity.”

“Useful and sobering.”

“Furiously brilliant.”

“A powerful call to bust the myths and bridge the gap.”

“Caroline Criado Perez’s authoritative tone is convincing…[and] her indignant narration paired with well-researched facts will inspire listeners to consider details of the world around them…Speaking in a clear voice and a British accent, Perez sounds incensed and unapologetic. Her passion will incite listeners to action in the face of truly depressing data that proves how dangerous the world is for women.”

“As Invisible Women illuminates…communities pay tremendous costs for the gender data gap: costs of income, time, women’s health, and sometimes women’s lives.”

“Even with all the progress women have made in the last few decades, Invisible Women proves we still have a long way to go. Reading this book—preferably in a comfortably warm room—is the first step.”

“A provocative, vital book.”

“This thoughtful and surprisingly humorous view of institutional bias and gendered information gaps…should have wide popular appeal.”

"[A] diligently researched and clearly written exposé."

“An exposé on the shocking root cause of gender inequality and research, an intimate investigation of the true scope of domestic violence, and a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers.”
