Designers have to be thinkers, dreamers, drawers, artists, builders, cogitators, workers, programmers, leaders, environmentalists, nurturers, drafters and frontrunners. They don’t have to be male. This is obvious to society, but sometimes a reminder aids to dispel the still semi-prevalent image we all have of white older men in black turtlenecks and spectacles. How can we, as students, change the way that “capital-S” Society supports confident women in the field of architecture? The solution I feel most authorized to give is to focus not on an absence of representation and ask “where are all the women in this room?”, but to actively support the women in academia and practice by supporting assertiveness, technology, and leadership amongst anyone who wishes to succeed.
