"Invisible Women" by Caroline Criado Perez

A survey of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the NREM department in 2020 found that many respondents reported experiencing and/or observing gender discrimination within the department. As "big data" begins to increasingly drive our work, we recommend the book "Invisible Women: Exposing data bias in a world designed for men" by Caroline Criado Perez, which explores how the lack of gender-segregated datasets has impacted women across the world, with impacts felt in everything from modern transportation systems to tenure in higher education. 
Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates the shocking root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women​, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.
The Diversity Drop is a weekly newsletter developed and distributed by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee in the Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Iowa State University. The goal of the newsletter is to advance the knowledge and understanding that will enable us to build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive department, institution, and profession.
