Combining data crunching and analysis, personal stories and an international pool of examples, the massive extent to which policy, healthcare provision and a range of other infrastructural aspects of life are based on gender discriminatory information is addressed authoritatively here.

Brugerbedømmelser af Invisible Women

    Important, frustrating and mind-boggling.

    This book is jam packed with statistics showing how our modern world is built on and completely saturated by an (more or less) unconscious male bias, and how portraits how our we all (not just women) are loosing out because of it.

    I can definitely recommend this book, but I'd maybe go for the physical book. Listening to the audiobook made it hard to follow along and proces the sheer amount of numbers thrown around in this book.

    Jeg er imponeret over, hvor dokumenteret, spækket med data, denne bog er. Jeg vidste ikke, at langt flere kvinder end mænd fx kommer slemt til skade i forbindelse med trafikuheld - eller at årsagen til dette er et bildesign baseret på "en gennemsnitlig mand". Ej heller var jeg opmærksom på, at fx GPS stemmegenkendelse nemmere genkender mørkere stemmer pga. mandlige stemmer i algoritmen, eller at manglen på ordentlige toiletforhold i forbindelse med arbejde på marker i nogle fattige lande gør det svært for kvinder at tage disse (lavt-betalte) jobs. Det hele skyldes, at man ikke produktudvikler, byplanlægger og dataindsamler kønsopdelt og derfor heller ikke er bevidst om, hvordan kønsforskelle (både biologisk og kulturelt) mangler at komme til udtryk i den måde, vi designer samfundet på. Den bog burde være obligatorisk for enhver politiker, ingeniør, biolog og samfundsinteresseret.
