Reading maps or reading emotions? Barbie or Lego? We live in a gendered world where we are bombarded with messages about sex and gender. Professor of Cognitive Neuroimaging, Gina Rippon unpacks the stereotypes in The Gendered Brain and shows how these messages mould our ideas of ourselves and even shape our brains.
In Invisible Women, award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado-Perez shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. She exposes the gender data gap that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination and bias which has a profound effect on women’s lives.
Chaired by Dr. Elizabeth Reeder
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Gina Rippon and Caroline Criado-Perez: Data Bias and the Gendered Brain are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
