In honor of Women’s History Month, we welcome you to join our virtual book club meeting to discuss Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. Perez was awarded the 2019 FT and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award for this work. It was also a 2019 Goodreads nominee for the Best Science & Technology Choice Award.
"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."
