Lynne Walker; Brighton; 6/4/86

Historian Lynne Walker gave a public account to Feminist Architectural history in a show she curated for RIBA in 1984 entitled; Women Architects: Their Work. For the catalogue Walker contributed a chapter specialising in 'British women in architecture, 1671-1951.

In this talk Walker introduces Feminist Architecture and the pervasive gender inequality throughout history and still today. In 1986 less than 2,000 women architects were operating in the UK, 93% of the industry being male, white and middle class.
