Invisible Women

Posted by Speakeasy News > Tuesday 09 July 2019 >

British author and activist Caroline Criado Perez’s new book Invisible Women sets out to show that we live in a world that is literally made for men. And the results of that vary from annoying to downright dangerous. This B2-B2+ resource based around a review of the book fits well into the Shine Bright 1re Advanced file 1 for LLCER: Brave new women, on women and dystopias. What if real life were dystopian? The focus on science and technology in Criado Perez’s examples mean the resource could also be used in a sequence on Innovations scientifiques et responsabilité.
