What is the Text?

‘Invisible Women’ by Caroline Criado Perez

Text Overview

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men is a number one Sunday Times bestseller, described as ‘a book that changes the way you see the world.’ It is currently being translated into 30 languages and is the winner of the 2019 Royal Society Science Book Prize, the 2019 Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award and the 2019 Books Are My Bag Readers’ Choice Award.

In this book, Caroline Criado Perez analyses how gender politics are affected and enhanced by gaps in ‘big data’. 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.

Invisible Women was described by Caitlin Moran as “one of those books that has the potential to change things – a monumental piece of research.” Melanie Reid in The Times called Invisible Women “a game-changer…making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly…the ambition and scope – and sheer originality – of Invisible Women is huge…It should be on every policymaker, politician and manager’s shelves,” a sentiment that was echoed by Nicola Sturgeon who described it as “revelatory,” adding that “it should be required reading for policy and decision makers everywhere.” It is a frustrating, eye-opening and fascinating read, and one which will make you reconsider how you experience the world around you, regardless of your gender.
