From government policies to medical research, workplaces to technology, and beyond, Perez uncovers how our world, largely built for and by men, systematically overlooks the experiences and needs of women, often leading to disastrous consequences. With a wealth of case studies, stories, and cutting-edge research from around the globe, Perez illustrates the pervasive ways in which women are side-lined, showcasing the profound impact this negligence has on society as a whole. Professor Dr Wyatt offers compelling examples and shares her enthusiasm for this eye-opening work, urging readers to explore the insights presented in “Invisible Women.”

As the world celebrates International Women’s Day today (8 March), it’s more important than ever to recognise and address the systemic biases and inequalities faced by women worldwide. “Invisible Women” serves as a powerful reminder of the urgent need for gender inclusivity in all aspects of society.
