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

In ‘Invisible Women’, Caroline Criado Perez brings together an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the profound impact this has on us all. Caroline will expose the shocking gender data gap present in our society, and discuss her work as an activist.

There will be a chance to ask Caroline questions during an audience Q&A session, as well as the opportunity to get your copy signed.

Copies of the book will be available on the night.
