Caroline Criado Perez: Invisible Women

From Saturday Morning, 11:06 am on 13 June 2020

Smartphones too big for female hands, air-bags designed to protect men's bodies -  in many respects it really is a man's world.

From design to government policy, from medical research to the workplace, the male experience is often assumed to be the standard.

In her book Invisible Women writer and feminist campaigner Caroline Criado Perez brings together examples gathered from across the world to show how women's experiences are ignored.

Criado Perez's past successes include getting a woman featured on English banknotes, and having a statue of suffragist Millicent Fawcett erected near Parliament in London.
