Yale Women In Architecture

Read a free, online article about the history of women students at Yale University since the School of Architecture's first female graduate in 1949. Nina Rappaport wrote the piece which looks at the architecture profession as one which has been traditionally male-dominated despite a near fifty-fifty split between the sexes on enrolment to architecture degree programmes in later decades.

In 2012, while the disparity is diminishing, Yale has hosted the first event of its kind to celebrate the accomplishments of its alumnae and to consider the future contributions that women may make to the benefit of the architecture profession at large.

Two book titles by the same author can be found on the GSA Library catalogue.
