It’s time for women to be seen

‘Invisible Women is the story of what happens when we forget to account for half of humanity’ says Caroline Criado Perez.

This fabulous book draws out the truth of gender bias in all walks of society. Caroline Perez tells it as it is and with lots of supporting evidence. The thoroughness of her research does not detract from its readability – it is both a must read for the general population and a resource for researchers. I loved every page, was excited by her findings and feel that it should be part of every STEM curriculum.

It’s a call for change in what data is collected, how it is analysed and what we do with it. It’s a call for change in the way we all think and how we design our world. The days of the default human being male are not yet over.

Hear more from Caroline through her newsletter, listen to her talk about PPE in the New Scientist Podcast or experience her in real life on a lecture tour. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing her in the Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays with my daughter Christine.
