The smash-hit bestseller which exposes the invisible bias in our everyday lives - 'HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things' (Caitlin Moran)

*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 Moran

Imagine 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 47% more likely to be injured.
If any of that sounds familiar, chances are you’re a woman.
From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, and the media. Invisible Women reveals how in a world built for and by men we are systematically ignoring half of the population, often with disastrous consequences. Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the profound impact this has on us all.

Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives.

About the Author

Caroline Criado Perez is a writer, broadcaster and public speaker. She writes across the major national media, most regularly for the New Statesman and the Guardian, and appears in both print and broadcast as a commentator. Her first book, Do it Like a Woman, was published by Portobello in 2015. Eleanor Marx hailed it in the New Statesman as ‘an extended and immersive piece of investigative journalism,’ while Bridget Christie chose it as one of her books of the year in the Guardian, declaring that ‘young girls and women everywhere should have a copy.’

Criado Perez is also an award-winning feminist campaigner. Her most notable campaigns have included co-founding The Women’s Room, getting a woman on Bank of England banknotes, forcing Twitter to revise its procedures for dealing with abuse and successfully campaigning for a statue of suffragist Millicent Fawcett to be erected in Parliament Square. She was the 2013 recipient of the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year award, and was named an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015. She lives in London.
Industry Reviews
Revelatory - it should be required reading for policy and decision makers everywhere -- Nicola Sturgeon
HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things - a monumental piece of research -- Caitlin Moran
Revelatory, frightening, hopeful. A secular Bible -- Jeanette Winterson
This book is a devastating indictment of institutionalised complacency and a rallying cry to fight back... Invisible Women should propel women into action. It should also be compulsory reading for men -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times *
Invisible Women takes on the neglected topic of what we don't know - and why. The result is a powerful, important and eye-opening analysis of the gender politics of knowledge and ignorance. With examples from technology to natural disasters, this is an original and timely reminder of why we need women in the leadership of the institutions that shape every aspect of our lives. -- Cordelia Fine
