Book: Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men Author: Caroline Criado Perez Description: Caroline Criado Perez's Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men is a landmark, prize-winning, international bestselling examination of how a gender gap in data perpetuates bias and disadvantages women. Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development to health care to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this insidious bias: in time, in money, and often with their lives. This online program delves into the topic of gender equality. Read a curated list of articles, podcasts, and videos about the topic. Gain access to a gender equality training and join the community to engage in conversations about the book and topic.
