I know it’s not a new book or anything but Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez is brilliant! Every time I walked down an icy street recently and found myself forced to walk in the road rather than on the pavement - because the roads had been gritted but the pavements hadn’t - I found myself thinking about the section in the book that speaks about how when a Scandinavian council looked at all their practices through a gendered lens they realised that it even affected what was gritted or not. They changed their gritting schedule to prioritise the pavements and found that there was a significant reduction in injuries and subsequent healthcare costs. I’ve lent the book to my Mum so I can’t refer you to the precise bit, but it’s worth a read and full of surprises!
