Editorial Reviews

Review

"The insidious and hidden nature of . . . internalized bias is perhaps the most compelling reason why all architects--especially those that don't think that gender equity affects them--ought to examine this issue in greater depth to see if they may unwittingly be taking part. Many architects strive to create socially-minded physical places that encourage access for all. It's imperative to ensure that the same kind of equity is being built into the profession itself."---Elsa Lam, Canadian Architect

"The book is an excellent primer if you already are concerned about the topic--but especially if you are not."---Anthony Paletta, Urban Land

"[A] concise, highly readable book. . . . The first chapter, in essence a history of women in architecture, gives an illuminating and detailed account of events in the US."---Flora Samuel, Times Higher Education

"‘Male-dominated' is an understatement in architecture. . . . In this slim chronicle, architectural historian Despina Stratigakos incisively catalogues the setbacks.", Books in Brief

"A splendid book."---Carol Tavris, Times Literary Supplement

"In 2015, when Britain's Architecture Journal asked its readers whether they would encourage a woman to enter the profession only half said yes. Despina Stratigakos' compact book replies to this impasse and in doing so, it offers moments of despair and delight in rendering the place of women within the practice and culture of architecture. . . . Stratigakos' provocations render this a valuable read. In fields beyond architecture too, where the loss of women eliminates a ‘large and vital art of talent pool' to the detriment of both a discipline but also more broadly the community it serves by not being reflective of its make up. Perhaps in wrestling with these questions we might illuminate a path towards more sustainable forms of practice, for all practitioners--women or men."---Kerstin Thompson, Sydney Morning Herald

"Where Are the Women Architects? . . . explores the reasons why female designers have struggled to gain a foothold in the profession, despite recent efforts and campaigns, and why the attrition of women in the profession continues. . . . From a look at Mattel's architecture Barbie, an intervention in popular culture, to an exploration of the campaign to pressure the Pritzker committee to give equal recognition to Denise Scott Brown (partner and wife of Pritzker laureate Robert Venturi) [Stratigakos] explores numerous facets of architecture's gender imbalance."---Patrick Sisson, Curbed

"An important contribution to the discussion of gender and equity in architecture, Where Are the Women Architects? advances a deeper agenda: to document the swell of grassroots and institutional efforts to promote women in architecture and to mobilize new initiatives. . . . What if it became required reading for introductory survey courses on architectural history and theory? [Stratigakos'] call to action--that equity is everyone's issue--is urgent, and it is up to all of us to pick up the charge."---Caroline James, ArchitectureBoston

"All too timely."---Carol Tavris, Wall Street Journal

"[A] slim but sharp volume on problems women face in the architecture profession. . . . [A] concise, accessible book.", Publishers Weekly

Review

"Despina Stratigakos unravels the stultifying, appeasing mantra that ‘things are not that bad anymore' when it comes to the place of women in the profession of architecture. Clearly, she shows, they are that bad. Where Are the Women Architects? is timely and significant."―Cathrine Veikos, California College of the Arts
