Summary
From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces and the media, Invisible Women reveals how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population, often with disastrous consequences. Caroline Cridado 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
