"Excellent!! Invisible Women is meticulously researched and data-driven, even while providing the relatable, readable stories behind these data: stories of women in many places and different circumstances, but all sharing some of the most simple of concerns: wanting to survive and thrive, give birth to and raise children, make sure aging parents have what they need, and simply contribute in the public sphere. "
"VERY data driven and slightly hard to read because of it. Really well cited, intersectional, provocative information though, it is pretty good for a reference book or reading single chapters at a time"
"Amazing read. Everyone should read this, women, men, mothers, fathers, friends and especially people in high society positions. Everyone needs to understand what Perez is teaching, we are not “atypical” because we are women"
"Global perspective, not as much application to personal day to day life but highly evidence backed approach to the impacts of lacking disaggregated data. "
"Amazing! An absolutely fascinating read."
