Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER HELL YES This is one of those books that has the potential to change things a monumental piece of research Caitlin MoranImagine a world where Your phone is too big for your hand Your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body In a car accident you are % likely to be injuredIf any of that sounds familiar chances are you re a womanFrom government policy and medical research to t. This book is amazing at opening the door on invisible bias unfortunately I am not a fan of the writing styleThe author makes fantastic points backs it up with great facts but then in an attempt to cement her point she will suddenly and needlessly jump to unrelated examples of sexism eg she makes fantastic eye opening points on why women s toilets should be bigger than men s but then jumps from discussing women s needs and toilet reuirements in the West to toilet issues faced by women in India this just belittles her first pointShe also uses the term White Men a lot I really cannot stand generalisations but stuck with it The author seems blame all the issues faced by women on men but reading this book makes you think a lot of these issues are a product of their time and are now a systematic societal issue which is as much women s fault as men s for example 76% of teachers are women and women by far make up the majority of childcare so why how are children still being raised with a male gender bias We have everything we need to change it so why hasn t it been changed the reason is because the women themselves and men don t know issues exist both genders need educating on these issuesEveryone should read this book as it provides great insight into bias we cannot see but live with but I think blaming one gender for the issues faced by another will create division and stall progression

    First things first the designer of this book was clearly on a roll The font is clear and delightful The italics, in particular, are so beautiful I had to take a picture of them and send it to my friend so he could appreciate them too The cover design is subtle and fantastic When you take the dustjacket off, the overlaid blue male figures disappear, leaving the invisible women behind, which ties in wonderfully

    Interesting and very relevant topic The book has definitely led to than one heated discussion with various people My only complaint would be, that the argument seems very one sided at times But then again, this book delivers exactly what it says in the title.
