This month the world celebrated Women’s day. Even though equality is now taken seriously almost everywhere, it is still not a date for much celebration, as the gender gap is still quite large and there is still much to be done.
This book highlights how the world is still mainly male and designed for men, leaving out half of the population of things such as government policy to medicine, showing the male bias that still exists among us (yes, I include women here).
Based on very interesting case studies and literature reviews, and even though it also includes some anecdotal cases for illustration purposes, it is well fundamented and clearly shows how much work still has to be done. I understand it may be polemical but I recommend it to everyone who is curious to learn how half of the population lives.
