Join writer and campaigner Caroline Criado Perez for a discussion of the gender bias that affects our everyday lives. 

Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, and in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be injured.  If any of that sounds familiar, chances are you’re a woman.

From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, and the media, Invisible Women reveals how in a world built for and by men we are systematically ignoring half of the population, often with disastrous consequences. An impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world all illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the profound impact this has on us all.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from Caroline in person about the research behind the book, as well as her wider work as a writer, broadcaster and feminist campaigner.

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland
"HELL YES. This is one of those books that has the potential to change things – a monumental piece of research"
Caitlin Moran
"Revelatory, frightening, hopeful. A secular Bible"
Jeanette Winterson
