Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

characters Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Caroline Criado Perez Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men characters ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB That excludes womenAward winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado 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 impact this has on their health and well being In making the case for change this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world an This is a really good comprehensive investigation of how a failure to account for gender based needs and reuirements results in a bias towards cis menThis is exactly why the casual cissexism embedded in it is so unfortunate and harmfulPerez critics the continuous overlooking of women and women s needs but is herself continuously overlooking trans and nonbinary people She also keeps switching between sex and gender as interchangeableThe most problematic claim is that a lack of sex segregated bathrooms in some places increases rape and sexual assault This is clearly focusing on the wrong aspect of a problem while creating new problems for people who don t fit the norm It is extremely disappointing in the context of shedding light on how women are seen as a deviation of the cis male norm who is seen as defaultA critical book published in 2019 which deals with gender cannot ignore trans folks It is simply not good enough to address cis people exclusively in such a comprehensive bookHope there will be a better inclusive edition soon as it is highly important this kind of information be accessible for all
