Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men
Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men. Women die because in multiple ways men are used as the default for data analysis and women are ignored. Drugs are tested on men, even drugs intended for women alone. Crash tests use dummies based on men not women. Perez offers loads of evidence and multiple examples of many of the ways in which women are invisible and the consequence is dire. Women already know much of what’s in this book because of a lifetime of working around a world designed with men as the default. Men should read this book and join the outrage. Then, do something to make this nonsense stop. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Invisible Women from amazon.com.
