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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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 Times (London)
“Useful and sobering.” The Guardian (London)
“Furiously brilliant.” Irish Times (Dublin)
“As Invisible Women illuminates, in an almost overwhelming way, communities pay tremendous costs for the gender data gap: costs of income, time, women’s health, and sometimes women’s lives.” Bustle
“Even with all the progress women have made in the last few decades, Invisible Women proves we still have a long way to go. Reading this book—preferably in a comfortably warm room—is the first step.” PureWow
“Caroline Criado Perez’s authoritative tone is convincing…[and] her indignant narration paired with well-researched facts will inspire listeners to consider details of the world around them…Speaking in a clear voice and a British accent, Perez sounds incensed and unapologetic. Her passion will incite listeners to action in the face of truly depressing data that proves how dangerous the world is for women.” AudioFile
“A provocative, vital book.” Publishers Weekly
“This thoughtful and surprisingly humorous view of institutional bias and gendered information gaps…should have wide popular appeal.” Kirkus Reviews
“The thoroughness of Invisible Women doesn’t detract from its absolute readability. This is entertaining, scholarly, and so very important.” Adam Rutherford, author of A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived
