This book was enlightening for me. I kind of knew that science has made male the default and female the exceptional case, but to see myriad examples and their negative consequences is just mind boggling. It may not cover intersectional demographics but that’s probably a whole other book on its own, and a far more depressing book at that. If you’re a scientist, you must read it and internalize the importance of not making any one demographic group the default to which all other groups must generalize.… (mais)

How are we so bad at intersectional feminism still. The information in here is not surprising if you're a woman, even if it's infuriating. What's more infuriating is the way trans and nonbinary people are completely ignored. You'd think we'd learn our lesson being excluded from so many aspects of the world that we shouldn't be excluding anyone else, but that's not the case here sadly.

This book is important, yet its content feels like common knowledge for most women.

I've rated it a 3 because the author seems inclined to defend and be there for individuals solely based on their gender. While there are many compelling reasons some stuff is just ridiculous.
For example, the book argues, "Apple designs iPhones exclusively for men's hands!" However, considering that a majority of iPhone users are women, it raises the question: Why would Apple alter their phones when women are actively purchasing and contributing to their success? Does the author genuinely anticipate a shift in the practices of the iPhone giant, and if so, for what compelling reason?
While acknowledging data gaps and the prevalence of female victimhood, the book lacks a balanced perspective and can be overly defensive.

It's worth noting that any critique may be met with accusations of bias, echoing the book's tendency to dismiss alternative perspectives.
