The consequences of living in a world built around male data can be deadly
Women are twice more likely to die of heart failure than men because the emergency services only know the male symptoms and send women home.

Only women die from womb cancer and medicines are only tested on men.

Body armours are designed for a male chest and don’t protect women. Their bellies are not protected. Some female police officers have surgery to reduce their breath in order to be safer.
