Feminist activist Caroline Criado Perez’s most recent triumphs have been convincing the Bank of England to insert an image of Jane Austen on the £10 bank note and successfully campaigning to have a statue of Millicent Fawcett placed in Parliament Square.
Her new book, Invisible Women, is a powerful and eye-opening analysis of the gender politics of knowledge and ignorance. It exposes a gender data gap which leads to systematic bias against women. Her talk will be a rallying call for women to take up positions of leadership. Her first book was Do it Like a Woman. In conversation with Guardian journalist Polly Toynbee.
