Descripción: Críticas "Invisible Women is a game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts, sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly. ... the ambition and scope -- and sheer originality -- of Invisible Women is huge; no less than the story of what happens when we forget to account for half of humanity. It should be on every policymaker, politician and manager's shelves."-- "The Times (UK)""Invisible Women is an absorbing cornucopia of thought-provoking facts - fascinating, alarming and face-palming in equal measures. Caroline Criado Perez shows up the shortcomings of a world designed for men by men. The consequences of treating men as the default option, or women just as smaller men - if they get considered at all - has wide-reaching implications for everything (and everyone) from snow clearing to seat-belts and many branches of medicine. I shall certainly think of this book next time I have a heart attack, a car crash or just want to go to the toilet at the theatre."--Georgina Rippon "Professor Emeritus of Cognitive Neuroimaging, Aston University""A blisteringly good book... never less than eye-opening, and frequently staggering."-- "The Bookseller""A diligently researched and clearly written exposé."-- "Booklist""A powerful call to bust the myths and bridge the gap."-- "Nature""A provocative, vital book."-- "Publishers Weekly""An excellent book packed with practical information of the kind required by those attempting to dismantle the patriarchy."-- "The Irish Times""An incredible book."-- "Roman Mars, 99% Invisible""As Invisible Women illuminates, in an almost overwhelming way, communities pay tremendous costs for the gender data gap: costs of income, time, women's health, and sometimes women's lives."-- "Bustle""Brilliant ... Invisible Women lays out in impressive detail the many ways that human beings are presumed to be male, as well as the wide-reaching effects of this distorted view of humanity."-- "Katha Pollitt, The Nation""Brilliant."-- "The Economist""Criado Perez doesn't set out to prove a vast conspiracy; she simply wields data like a laser, slicing cleanly through the fog of unconscious and unthinking preferences."-- "The Guardian""Even with all the progress women have made in the last few decades, Invisible Women proves we still have a long way to go. Reading this book--preferably in a comfortably warm room--is the first step."-- "PureWow""Feminist campaigner, Caroline Criado-Perez left us gobsmacked with Invisible Women, an in-depth look at how women are (still) excluded in society." -- "Refinery29 (UK)""In clear language, the author builds a strong case for greater inclusion with this thoughtful and surprisingly humorous view of institutional bias and gendered information gaps. While some readers may suggest that equality has arrived and gender no longer matters, this book, which should have wide popular appeal, is a solid corrective to that line of thought."-- "Kirkus Reviews""Read this book and then tell me the patriarchy is a figment of my imagination."--Jeanette Winterson "The New York Times""Shocking, yet essential, reading."-- "Stylist""The most important book I have ever read."-- "Women You Should Know""The thoroughness of Invisible Women doesn't detract from its absolute readability. This is entertaining, scholarly and so very important."--Adam Rutherford "author of A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived""There's a sense of rage simmering beneath the surface of Invisible Women, every now and then it bubbles up in the text, but the book's force doesn't derive from the power of its rhetoric - instead it's the steady, unrelenting accumulation of evidence, the sheer weight of her argument. ... Reading Invisible Women one might experience, as I did, the dizzying sensation that so many of my own stories, so many of my friends' stories, so many incidents I had experienced as discrete and unrelated - at work, at home, on the streets, in hospital - are in fact interconnected.
