Review

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

"This book is a devastating indictment of institutionalised complacency and a rallying cry to fight backInvisible 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)

"Hugely readable, packed with facts and insight. An important book written with humour and flair" (Robert Webb)

"The thoroughness of Invisible Women doesn’t detract from its absolute readability. This is entertaining, scholarly and so very important." (Adam Rutherford)

"Here are the facts! Caroline Criado Perez shines her penetrating gaze on the absence of women from the creation of most societal norms – from algorithms to medicinal doses to government policy. Knowledge is power – we all need to know how our systems work if we want change. Arm yourself with this book and press it into the hands of everyone you know. It is utterly brilliant! " (Helena Kennedy)

"Invisible Women is an absorbing cornucopia of thought-provoking facts - fascinating, alarming and face-palming in equal measures. Caroline Criado-Perez shows up the shortcomings of a world designed for men by men. The consequences of treating men as the default option, or women just as smaller men – if they get considered at all - has wide-reaching implications for everything (and everyone) from snow clearing to seat-belts and many branches of medicine. I shall certainly think of this book next time I have a heart attack, a car crash or just want to go to the toilet at the theatre." (Professor Gina Rippon)

"A blisteringly good book... never less than eye-opening, and frequently staggering" (Bookseller)

"It’s a smart strategy to invite readers to view [a] timeworn topic through the revealing lens of data, bringing to light the hidden places where inequality still resides... Criado Perez wields data like a laser, slicing cleanly through the fog of unconscious and unthinking preferences." (Guardian)

Book Description

An exciting and ground-breaking work of journalism and activism about women, and the systemic discrimination caused by a data gap that affects half the population - from an award-winning writer and feminist campaigner, who got a woman on our banknotes and a statue of Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square
