Books on energy, climate, feminism, etc.
Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez — Feminism isn’t just for sociologists! Perez reveals how gender bias is woven into all of our systems, infrastructure, and technology. If you’re an engineer, designer, scientist, doctor, orchestral musician — whatever — you need to read this book to understand how gender bias secretly permeates every facet of your profession and what your role is in making the world more equitable.
Short Circuiting Policy: Interest Groups and the Battle Over Clean Energy and Climate Policy in the American States by Leah Cardamore Stokes — Not for the faint of heart! Stokes isn’t playing around. She did the work. She has the receipts. This is an essential read for people working in the electric utility industry, and I also highly recommend it for anyone interested in how public policy is influenced by interest groups in general.
Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky — Great for children and young adults!
