Caroline Criado Perez OBE is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and feminist campaigner.

Her unique background allows Caroline to engage with her audience. She is knowledgeable, passionate and a fantastic, uplifting communicator.
In her bestseller, Invisible Women, Caroline highlights the systematic, and often unconscious biases behind the data and assumptions that construct our everyday lives. From healthcare diagnoses to search algorithms, the over-reliance on men being the default standard has left women, and society as a whole, disadvantaged. Caroline’s book Do it Like a Woman also looks at female role models from around the world, and throughout history. Alongside regular appearances on the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV and has written for The Guardian, the Telegraph, The Washington Post and the New Statesman.
