WINGs first book club
Published 12 July 2022
On Tuesday, June 21st, we had our first book-club! Twenty-five eager and a little bit angry (this book evokes emotion) women gathered at Geocentrum II to discuss Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez (read more below). It was a very nice and inspirational afternoon lead by our hosts and organisers Rebecca and Amber. Did I mention there was also lunch and fika!!
For our next book club we will be reading "Who Cooked Adam Smiths’s Dinner?: A Story of Women and Economics" by Katrine Marcal. Stay tuned for more info!
ABOUT INVISIBLE WOMEN:
Imagine a world where...
* Your phone is too big for your hand
* Your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body
* In a car accident you are 47% more likely to be injured
If any of that sounds familiar, chances are you're a woman. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, and the media, Invisible Women reveals how in a world built for and by men we are systematically ignoring half of the population, often with disastrous consequences. Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time 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. Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives.
