About the Event

Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued.

If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman.

Join award-winning campaigner and best-selling author Caroline Criado Perez for this illuminating conversation about her book Invisible Women. Caroline will expose the shocking gender data gap present in our society, and discuss her work as an activist. Join the conversation and be part of this urgent call for change. Price includes a copy of Invisible Women

"she simply wields data like a laser, slicing cleanly through the fog of unconscious and unthinking preferences"
The Guardian
"Criado Perez comprehensively makes the case that seemingly objective data can actually be highly male-biased"
Financial Times
"anyone who doubts that we live in a world designed by and for men needs to read this book"
Literary Review
"a rallying cry to fight back"
The Sunday Times
"The book is admirably internationalist in its perspective."
Irish Times
"The assumption that men are the norm has created discrimination against women, but some problems are more serious than others"
Evening Standard
"it is never less than eye-opening, and frequently staggering"
The Bookseller
"It’s nevertheless useful and sobering to have it listed in this way, to have numbers to quantify our pain and misery"
The Observer
"...the steady, unrelenting accumulation of evidence, the sheer weight of her argument"
New Statesman
"as Criado Perez systematically shows, women are still considered the second sex, if they are considered at all."
Times Literary Supplement

From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women.
