„Women have always worked. They have worked unpaid, underpaid, underappreciated, and invisibly, but they have always worked. But the modern workplace does not work for women. From its location, to its hours, to its regulatory standards, it has been designed around the lives of men and it is no longer fit for purpose. The world of work needs a wholesale redesign–of its regulations, of its equipment, of its culture–and this redesign must be led by data on female bodies and female lives. We have to start recognising that the work women do is not an added extra, a bonus that we could do without: women’s work, paid and unpaid, is the backbone of our society and our economy. It’s about time we started valuing it.“ My friend @kathi.zimmermann was extra right when she told me to read #CarolineCriadoPerez‘ „Invisible Women“. This book is beyond important to understand how, „in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population“ and will be available in German, too – February it is! (as I learned from @fraeulein_tessa today).
