Do you know that the average smartphone is too big for women’s hands? Or that women are 50% more likely than men to be seriously injured in a car crash? Published at the outset of Women’s History Month, Caroline Criado Perez’s eye-opening book provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives. Marshalling a wealth of data with precision and insight, as the Times affirms, ‘Invisible Women is a game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts, sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly.’
