The gender gap in architectural practice: Can we afford it?

WithANN DE GRAFT-JOHNSON, SANDRA MANLEY AND CLARA GREED

Abstract Only 13 per cent of architects in the UK are women. Statistical evidence indicates that the number of female students studying architecture has increased to 37 per cent, but the percentage of women practising has not increased at the expected level. In other words, women are leaving the profession after qualifying.
