Alicia Kubas reviewed “When Women Didn’t Count: Behind the scenes on data collection and women in the USA” by Robert Lopresti on this installment of “Read This Book!” from the University of Minnesota Libraries.

In the book, Lopresti details the startling facts of how women have been sidelined, neglected, and just plain lied about in United States government statistics for more than two centuries.

Kubas also discussed some of the strangest discoveries she’s seen and heard about from the government publications collections.
