For a century and a half, women have been proving their passion and talent for building and, in recent decades, their enrollment in architecture schools has soared. Yet the number of women working as architects remains stubbornly low, and the higher one looks in the profession, the scarcer women become. Law and medicine, two equally demanding and traditionally male professions, have been much more successful in retaining and integrating women. So why do women still struggle to keep a toehold in architecture? Where Are the Women Architects? tells the story of women's stagnating numbers in a profession that remains a male citadel, and explores how a new generation of activists is fighting back, grabbing headlines, and building coalitions that promise to bring about change. Accessible, frank, and lively, Where Are the Women Architects? will be a revelation for readers far beyond the world of architecture.

"This important and sharp critique makes a convincing argument about the status of women and the deep-seated gender issues in the profession of architecture. Accessibly written, it will be incredibly useful to readers inside and outside of the field. Despina Stratigakos demonstrates how far things have progressed--and how far we have yet to go."--Lori A. Brown, Syracuse University School of Architecture
