‘Default male bias’ makes for generations of ‘invisible women’, author tells UN audience

Although women make up half the global population, they are often disregarded in the increasingly important world of big data: from measuring economic growth, to disaster response and recovery, or key public transportation planning,  award-winning author Caroline Criado-Perez said at the United Nations on Friday. 

Nahla Valji, the UN’s first Senior Gender Advisor in the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, asked Ms. Criado-Perez what inspired her to write the book Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men, and how the UN can learn from her research on ‘default male bias’.
