Women's Lib Book Club- Invisible Women

For May we will be reading INVISIBLE WOMEN: DATA BIAS IN A WORLD DESIGNED FOR MEN by CAROLINE CRIADO PEREZ. We will be meeting on Friday, May 17th at 6:00 p.m. as always.

 

About the book: 

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 sometimes 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.
