Invisible Women

Invisible Women

Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

Caroline Criado Perez wrote a compelling exploration of how gender bias pervades data collection, analysis, and decision-making processes, resulting in systemic discrimination against women. Perez meticulously uncovers various instances where the needs, experiences, and contributions of women are overlooked or disregarded, leading to significant gaps in areas such as healthcare, urban planning, economics, and technology. By dissecting data gaps and biases, Perez sheds light on the ways in which women are rendered invisible in various facets of society, and she calls for greater awareness and inclusivity in data collection and policy-making to address these inequalities effectively.

Through meticulous research and engaging storytelling, Perez illustrates how the failure to account for gender differences perpetuates inequalities and hampers progress toward gender equality. From the gender data gap in medical research, which results in misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment for women, to the lack of female representation in urban planning leading to unsafe environments for women, “Invisible Women” challenges readers to reconsider the default male perspective that dominates many aspects of our world. Ultimately, Perez advocates for a more inclusive and equitable approach to data collection and policy-making, one that acknowledges and addresses the diverse needs and experiences of women.
