Caroline Criado Perez's Invisible Women

Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

When I first read an excerpt of this book I was enthralled – and enraged – and began to tell everyone I know about the design bias in our world – from medical research to crash test dummies to public transit…

Criado-Perez delves deeply into the myriad ways the male body and typically masculine social rules / customs are not just preferred, but considered the automatic default.

The root of this problem is essentially structural misogyny, but its perpetuation is also due to a lack of data collection around women’s lives.

Very enlightening.
