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 often with their lives. Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates 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. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.… (mais)

At first glance, Criado Perez seems to rely a bit too much on data with percentages and statistics thrown on the page and punctuated with the leitmotiv "gender data gap". However, from this foundation, she builds a compelling story on the numerous ways in which women are disadvantaged in all spheres of life and in all societies. She looks broadly across the world, analyzing studies from every continent and how unexamined biases affect women in real ways: their health, their safety, their ability to ear a living and much more besides. Her style is academic but not dry which makes the book an easy read - before I knew it I'd finished the book (and I'm not a big nonfiction reader).
This book is an excellent example of the importance of such tools as the Gender Bias Analysis Plus to ensure that voiced of all humans are heard, listened to and actioned on. It is also a great way to continue the conversation on equality and feminism in a rational, deliberate and focused way. ( )

Oh, this book. Filled with important data pointing out the myriad ways that women have been neglected in building society around the world. And so depressing that it took me forever to read it.

Criado Perez is thorough. She explores not just the commonly known areas where women have been historically unplanned for, like medicine and the workplace, but also transportation, public toilets, the internet, refugee camps, and the list goes on and on. She ends with summing up her work into three themes that "define women's relationship with the world". One is the invisibility of the female body - neglecting to take into account the female body in medicine, technology, and architecture - and how it has led to injury, death, and a world where we just don't fit. Two is, ironically, the hyper-visibility of the female body. Male sexual violence against women and how we don't measure it and don't design spaces to account for it or limit it. And third, the unaccounted and unpaid care work of which women do more than their fair share. In our current world, "human" equals "male".

Her main solution to all of this is getting women in the position to be involved in decisions. To me, this seems undoubtedly correct, though I think part of that equation has to be getting men involved evenly in the unpaid care work at the same time. (Please, to all my male friends who are already there and doing their fair share, I see it and acknowledge it - my husband included!) I do love her last line:

"And so, to return to Freud's 'riddle of femininity', it turns out that the answer was staring us in the face all along. All 'people' needed to do was to ask women."

This is a book everyone should read, but fair warning that it isn't comfortable or easy reading. ( )

This is a complicated book. It struggles in a couple of areas... repetition, organization, etc.

And Criado-Perez's points are valid. Quite valid. Women are overlooked, far too often, in favor of a simpler, or less awkward(?), solution. And this is wrong.

However, I would respectfully hypothesize that her solution is not the most effective solution. Pass all the laws that you want but, as she has so succinctly pointed out, this doesn't work. And won't work. We need a better solution. More on that, probably, later. ( )

When I read this book a month ago I first gave it a four-star rating, and meant to fill in a review later. Now, having read more about Criado Perez, I don't know how to rate it. It seems undeniable, from her previous statements and unwillingness to retract them (though she has deleted many a controversial tweet) that Criado Perez is a trans-exclusionary radical feminist. This, to put it mildly, really sucks.

The topic Criado Perez is writing about desperately needs to be addressed, and she has many startling and powerful examples. She's obviously a competent statistician, and lays her points out well. But now I realize there is a huge gap in her analysis. Maybe not a central one, but one that calls into question the rest of the whole.

While reading the book I had noticed her brief and confused attempt to address "sex vs gender" and the absence of any discussion of the struggles of trans people, but I vaguely assumed that this came from a place of abridgment or mild ignorance, and not outright dismissal. I admit that, as a cis woman, I have the privilege to "vaguely assume" and move on relatively unperturbed. But now that I've heard that Criado Perez has shown consistent disregard for any lens other than that of a binary gender model, her use of a certain trans-exclusive, or trans-occlusive, vocabulary and framework is clearly not incidental, but purposeful.

With fiction, it is hard to know how to react when you find out that the author has a point of view you find incredibly wrong and damaging-- how does that affect the book you've read? But here the case is more clear-cut. To me, finding out that Criado Perez fails to recognize the importance of intersectionality undermines her entire book. Undoubtedly it would be a difficult task to write a truly intersectional book on this topic. And I don't know what conclusions could be drawn from such a book. But those conclusions must be valuable! When her entire point is about the peril of the gender data gap, and she spends an entire book shocking you with the profound effects of the world failing to account for the experiences and lived reality of women, she has set herself up to be questioned about her own undeniable gap in analysis. Now that I know how dramatic an effect is created in design, policy-making, architecture, and medicine by ignoring women, it makes it obvious how much of a damaging effect is created, including in areas we might not assume, by ignoring trans people.

Criado Perez has faced intense misogynistic online abuse for her feminist activism. She is clearly trying to expose a vital topic. But unfortunately, she does it at the cost of suppressing another.

Now, I am by no means an expert on this. I'm just some person with a goodreads account. But it makes me think, and it makes me mad. I wish there was a better version of this book. I hope somebody has the chance to write it.

Invisible women, indeed.

Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with the absolute truth.
