About this item
"Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men" is a book written by Caroline Criado-Perez that sheds light on the pervasive gender data gap in various aspects of society. Criado-Perez highlights how women are often left out of research and data collection, leading to inadequate and sometimes dangerous consequences for women. She argues that this data bias perpetuates inequalities in areas such as healthcare, transportation, urban planning, and technology, ultimately hindering progress towards gender equality.

The book explores how the male perspective has shaped everything from workplace settings to public policy decisions, with women often being excluded or overlooked in the process. Criado-Perez uses examples and case studies to illustrate the real-world implications of this data bias, from seat belts and crash test dummies designed for male bodies to medication dosages that are not tailored to women's physiological differences. By exposing these systemic biases, the author challenges readers to consider the ways in which gender data gaps impact women's lives and the need for more inclusive and equitable data collection practices.

"Invisible Women" is a thought-provoking and eye-opening read that challenges the reader to question the assumptions and biases that underpin everyday decision-making processes. Criado-Perez's book serves as a call to action for researchers, policymakers, and society as a whole to recognize and address the gender data gap in order to create a more inclusive and equitable world for all.
