Community Book Discussion: Invisible Women
Jennifer Gaylor will be leading a discussion about Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men, by Caroline Criado-Perez. Read this book, then come discuss how data bias affects all of us. Women are 51% of the population – representation matters! Gaylor is excited to open this up to women and men in our community so that we can arm ourselves with the information we need to make good decisions for our children and our future.
Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems.
