Favorite quote

The result of this deeply male-dominated culture is that the male experience, the male perspective, has come to be seen as universal, while the female experience - that of half the global population, after all - is seen as, well, niche.

Introduction

Why is it that when we talk about all of humanity, we say mankind?

For millennia, the female has been understood as a deviation from the male.

The male body and experience are understood as the universal default, while woman is the Other – the exception to the rule.

Modern society has progressed from ancient and medieval times in terms of gender equality, but male bias still influences all aspects of life, often in subtle ways.

Caroline Criado Perez is a renowned author and feminist activist who has led campaigns for female representation in media and public spaces.

In this book, Criado Perez shows us how gender bias shows up in data collection, the shape of our smartphones, and even the size of our pockets.

Through well-researched data and historical insight, Invisible Women shows why including women in decision-making processes is crucial for creating a better world for all.
