Editorial Reviews


“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

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.”―

“A provocative, vital book.”―
Publishers Weekly

“Feminist campaigner, Caroline Criado-Perez left us gobsmacked with
Invisible Women, an in-depth look at how women are (still) excluded in society.” ―Refinery29 (UK)

“This book is a devastating indictment of institutionalised complacency and a rallying cry to fight back…
Invisible Women should propel women into action.”―Sunday Times (UK)

The Economist

“There’s a sense of rage simmering beneath the surface of
Invisible Women, every now and then it bubbles up in the text, but the book’s force doesn’t derive from the power of its rhetoric – instead it’s the steady, unrelenting accumulation of evidence, the sheer weight of her argument. … Reading Invisible Women one might experience, as I did, the dizzying sensation that so many of my own stories, so many of my friends’ stories, so many incidents I had experienced as discrete and unrelated – at work, at home, on the streets, in hospital – are in fact interconnected. As women, we are so used to contorting ourselves to fit into men-shaped spaces, we’ve learned to ignore how often it hurts.”―The New Statesman

“A powerful call to bust the myths and bridge the gap.”―

“Shocking, yet essential, reading.”―

“Criado Perez doesn’t set out to prove a vast conspiracy; she simply wields data like a laser, slicing cleanly through the fog of unconscious and unthinking preferences.”―
The Guardian

Invisible Women is an absorbing cornucopia of thought-provoking facts - fascinating, alarming and face-palming in equal measures. Caroline Criado Perez shows up the shortcomings of a world designed for men by men. The consequences of treating men as the default option, or women just as smaller men – if they get considered at all - has wide-reaching implications for everything (and everyone) from snow clearing to seat-belts and many branches of medicine. I shall certainly think of this book next time I have a heart attack, a car crash or just want to go to the toilet at the theatre.”―Georgina Rippon, Professor Emeritus of Cognitive Neuroimaging, Aston University

"A blisteringly good book... never less than eye-opening, and frequently staggering."―
The Bookseller

“The thoroughness of
Invisible Women doesn’t detract from its absolute readability. This is entertaining, scholarly and so very important.”―Adam Rutherford, author of A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, enlightening and entertaining data review!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on August 18, 2019
The brilliance in this book is that Criado Perez presents multiple examples of a blatant male bias in the aggregate data being used to make decisions that affect women and men and leaves it sitting there for all to see that acceptance of the status quo is untenable, for any progressive and healthy society. There is no man-bashing here, thankfully. On the contrary, Caroline states that this gender bias is not malicious, it is and always has been unintentional, but it does disadvantage women in terms of vehicle safety, healthcare, and in myriad other ways. As a parent of three girls and two boys, several of whom are pursuing careers in STEM, this text is incredibly relevant to us. I could waffle on about the ways that this bias exists and that my offspring have encountered ad nauseam, from lab coats and goggles in only male sizes to consultants that think girls only exist to make coffee and look pretty. Enlightening, fascinating and mind-blowing data presented in an engaging and entertaining format - a very worthy 5 stars!

I saw Caroline being interviewed at the Edinburgh book festival recently and was impressed by her candour about the online threats she has received simply by putting her head above the parapet to campaign to have just one woman represented on the new bank notes and also by her reticence in being perceived as a strident feminist. What she has written here is simply a factual representation but it has brought her into the line of fire from all kinds of misogynists and people who would wish to silence the voice of truth and reason. These entrenched biases are not going to be corrected overnight, despite how detrimental some of them are to us as women, but the more of us who tentatively stand up and say 'actually, we matter as well' then perhaps the more likely we are to finally be heard. Although in the current political climate - terrifyingly - the reverse might be true.
