Can you imagine a world where your mobile phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where if you have a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured than your partner? Award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, she reveals the biased data that excludes women and talks about the impact this has on their health and wellbeing.
