Join us for a six-session, summer book study with our dear friend Barbara Thompson! Barbara will lead us through Caroline Criado Perez’s 2021 book Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men which—through careful research—sets the stage for a conversation about gender equity in families, workplaces, communities, and the church. Each session will be held virtually on Zoom to allow maximum participation, inclusive of our friends far and wide. Read on for more about the book and then register and order your copy today!


Data is fundamental to the modern world.  From economic development to health care, from education to public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions.  But because so much data fails to take gender into account and treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are built into our systems. Women pay tremendous costs for this bias—in time, in money, and often with their lives.  Author Caroline Criado Perez investigates the shocking root cause of gender inequality in Invisible Women.
