About the Event
Imagine a world where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, your phone is too big for your hand, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, or where the hours of work you do are not recognised or valued. If any of this feels familiar, chances are you’re a woman.
In conversation about her critically acclaimed book Invisible Women, Caroline Criado Perez reveals a world largely built for and by men, in areas that include government policy, medical research, technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media.
Following successful campaigns to put a woman on Bank of England notes, put a statue of suffragist Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square, and get Twitter to revise its abuse procedures, Criado Perez has produced Invisible Women to expose the shocking data bias that excludes women, the real life effect it has – and crucially, as a call for change.
