O tym, że tytoń zabija co roku kilka milionów ludzi, wie każdy. Działanie krzewu kokainowego jest z grubsza znane. Nazwa szaleju mówi sama za siebie. Ale żeby uważać na konwalie, hiacynty albo chryzantemy? I co szkodliwego może być w groszku? Owoce nasączone trucizną, nasiona zatrzymujące pracę serca, paraliżujące gałązki albo bluszcze duszące niczym węże boa – rośliny okazują się bardziej niebezpieczne niż niejeden drapieżnik.

Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back.

Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued. If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman.

Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap – a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against...

Nigel ShadboltInvisible Women is an exposé of just how much of the world around us is designed around the default male. Deploying a huge range of data and examples, Caroline Criado Perez, who is a writer, broadcaster and award winning campaigner, presents on overwhelming case for change.
