Caroline Criado Perez on Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men
Can you imagine a world where your mobile ‘phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where if you have a car accident you are 47% more likely to die than a male partner, where every week countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued? No need to imagine it…
In the recently-published Invisible Women, award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez exposes the gender data gap, alerting us to how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, she brings together research from across the world, showing how women are being systematically discriminated against, and the impact this has.
Caroline Criado Perez OBE is an activist and writer. She has already made women more visible through her campaigns for Jane Austen on the £10 bank note and a statute of Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square. Now, with Invisible Women, she makes us see gender bias afresh.
Caroline Criado Perez will be talking to Jane Martinson, Guardian columnist, former media and women’s editor and current Marjorie Deane professor of financial journalism at City University.
This event will be held in QA065, Queen Anne Court, University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College. ALL attendees must have a valid ticket.
