            THE #3 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Discover the shocking gender bias that affects our everyday lives 'A rallying cry to fight back' Sunday Times 'Press this into the hands of everyone you know. It is utterly brilliant!' Helena Kennedy 'A game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts..., sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly...the ambition and scope - and sheer originality - of Invisible Women is huge' The Times Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued. If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman. Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap - a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, and that has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women's lives. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women. Award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the impact this has on their health and well-being. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew.

            Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country
             

            Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country (Hardback)

            By Crane Murdoch, Sierra

            The true crime story of a murder on an Indian reservation, and the unforgettable Arikara woman who becomes obsessed with solving it--an urgent, page-turning work of literary journalism and social criticism. When Lissa Yellow Bird was released from prison in 2009, she found her ho...me, the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota, transformed by the Bakken oil boom. In her absence, the landscape had been altered beyond recognition, her tribal government swayed by corporate interests, and her community burdened by a surge in violence and addiction. Three years later, when Lissa learned that a young white oil worker, Kristopher KC Clarke, had disappeared from his reservation worksite, she became particularly concerned. No one knew where Clarke had gone, and no one but his mother was actively looking for him. Unfolding like a gritty mystery, Yellow Bird traces Lissa's steps as she obsessively hunts for clues to Clarke's disappearance. She navigates two worlds--that of her own tribe, changed by its newfound wealth, and that of the non-Native oil workers, down on their luck, who have come to find work on the heels of the economic recession. Her pursuit becomes an effort at redemption--an atonement for her own crimes and a reckoning with generations of trauma. Yellow Bird is both an exquisitely written, masterfully reported story about a search for justice and a remarkable portrait of a complex woman who is smart, funny, eloquent, compassionate, and--when it serves her cause--manipulative. Ultimately, it is a deep examination of the legacy of systematic violence inflicted on a tribal nation and a tale of extraordinary healing.
