Product description

Review

“Read this book and then tell me the patriarchy is a figment of my imagination.”
-- Jeanette Winterson, The New York Times

“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)

“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

“The most important book I have ever read.”
, Women You Should Know

“An excellent book packed with practical information of the kind required by those attempting to dismantle the patriarchy.”
, The Irish Times

“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

"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

“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

"An incredible book."
, Roman Mars, "99% Invisible"

“A diligently researched and clearly written exposé.”
, Booklist
