Critical Discourse: The F Word in Architecture

In The F Word In Architecture: Feminist Analyses in/of/for Architecture Sherry Ahrentzen talks about what gender has to do with architecture. She explains that gender is not necessarily sex, but a reflection of how social expectations, beliefs, and positions treat the biological characteristics of sex to form a system of values and identities. The amount of women architects in the past and present is quite limited. Architecture seems to be a male dominated profession with little feminism movements throughout the years, however, there are a large number of other professions in the world that are also male dominated and many of them have had more successful feminist accomplishments. This makes one wonder why is this not true in the architecture profession?
