TitleThe visibility of women architects in Galicia: wome in architectural journals
[Abstract] A survey of the presence of female Galician architects in Spanish architectural journals reveals the limited visibility and scant professional and cultural recognition of these women’s work. The lack of female role models in Galician architecture and the scarcity of references to their work by other authors highlight the existence of gender prejudices within the profession, which have only been reinforced by the low representation of women on the editorial boards of such publications. Our analysis of the visibility of women architects in Galicia is based on a specific, detailed database of contributions by women architects from 1940 to the present day, compiled in relation to a large corpus of specialist journals published during that period.
