I‘m a big old nerd, and I really like data. You know what‘s interesting? Most of the data sets used globally to inform technological and scientific development, urban planning, and social, economic, and politically policy is inherently biased. Against women. We live in a world where we collect data on assumed averages and commonalities which almost consistently exclude women. This is an engaging, thorough, frustrating, essential read.

Balibee146 I bought this audio book.... Looks infuriating but so interesting and necessary now
ClairesReads @Balibee146 it is exactly that. I hope you are engaged by it now

Between a 3 and a 4 star for me. Some of essays were really interesting. Some went on too long and I lost interest. Overall, this gave me a lot to think about.

I was inspired to wear my favourite t-shirt while finishing this book today. Mona is truly awesome. I have already bought a second copy to give to a friend for Christmas. Buy it. Read it. #fuckthepatriarchy 🖕🏻✊💜

This book is so eye-opening. She covers everything from why the lines for women‘s restrooms are so long (and why they shouldn‘t be) to how being left out of medical and safety research is literally killing women. The data gap, meaning the lack of inclusion of women, is so clearly shown in this book. I listened to the audiobook but also got a hard copy so I can reference its information more easily. #NFNov

Clwojick Sounds good! Stacking! 1d
MallenNC @Clwojick I hope you like it! It took me a chapter or so to get into it because it is (unsurprisingly) data heavy. But it is great. 1d

MallenNC @Readage @4thhouseontheleft I hope you both like it. The section on medical and safety research made the biggest impression on me. 16h

I could have quoted most pages in this book, but this kind of captures the idea. Women are left out of decisions and left out of research because men are seen as the default. #NFNov

Sin Number 5: Power. 👊

Here she‘s writing about Palestinian American Rashida Tlaib, elected to the US House of Representatives in November 2018.

Such a pleasure seeing Lindy West tonight. Always good to have a laugh as we‘re trying to process this crazy world we live in. She read a chapter from her new book (tagged but haven‘t read yet) called “Ted Bundy Was Not Charming, Are You High?” 😂

I found this collection of essays by Shrill author Lindy West unexpectedly delightful to listen to. It‘s not that I didn‘t think I‘d enjoy The Witches Are Coming, I just wasn‘t expecting how funny and warm it would be in addition to being sharp and incisive. Reading Shrill next! Thank you to Libro.fm for this free listening copy!

mariaku21 I really enjoyed Shrill, hope you do too! 2d
underground_bks @mariaku21 it‘s such an entertaining read—I‘m already a third of the way through! 2d
