Women Who Code Portland - Book Club



๐Ÿ“š Book Club: Invisible Women

We are really excited to launch a new event series: the WWCode Portland monthly Book Club!!! The first book we plan to read is "Invisible Women - Data Bias in a World Designed for Men" by Caroline Criado Perez.

We are starting this Book Club as a way to: 1. read, learn, and discuss books together 2. contribute to our Portland community by purchasing these books locally

As such, we encourage you to can purchase a copy of the book from Powells (or another local bookstore): https://www.powells.com/book/invisible-women-data-bias-in-a-world-designed-for-men-9781419729072

If you are a student, unemployed, under-employed, or need assistance to purchase this book, we will buy it for you and mail it to your house. Fill out the form on Meetup by June 14.
