Gender equality has been a controversial topic of the social sciences since time immemorial. And Feminism, as a concept in architecture, is one way of providing fairness to the practice by leveling the playing field. In fact, the female hormone "Oestrogen" is also present in men, while "Testosterone" is similarly found in women. All human beings have a shared characteristic. So, why should we discriminate by stereotyping people? Being open to different creative expressions in design is the key to progress.
To illustrate, take the late architect Zaha Hadid. She had huge opposition from her male counterparts early in her career because she was a woman practicing a profession dominated by men. It was an uphill climb for her yet, with perseverance, she became the first woman to achieve the Pritzker Prize, the highest award and honor for architects, and became a global celebrity. She also transformed the architectural community with her state-of-the-art concept called Parametricism. If you've noticed this style, there are lots of distinctive curves that demonstrate the female form.
Many thanks, @juecoree for this awesome post! This is clearly a wake-up call.
