According to Architecture + Women NZ, while over 50% of architecture students are now women, far fewer continue in practice. A low percentage of women reach high-level roles within the industry, there is a significant pay disparity between women and men, and the work created by women architects is largely unseen.
As a woman in the architecture industry, these statistics cause me great concern and motivate me to further get behind the work of our talented female architectural designers.
