Women in architecture panel ( February 24, 1976) Part 2 of 301:02:06

Shelly Kappe brings up the AIA’s recent attempts to encourage women to study architecture, and to join the association, which might be considered affirmative action. The panelists discuss professional gender equality around the world, noting that although in Europe and Asia women were given more opportunities for employment, women there were never appointed to management positions. They discuss the everyday challenges of practice, with which a sense of humor helps. They stress being architects first and women second.
