In this video, Cathleen McGuigan, editor-in-chief of Architectural Record, discusses gender within the professional setting, specifically within the world of architecture at the Harvard GSD. As she begins, she addresses the question that most people have when such a topic is approached. ”Why are we still talking about this?” McGuigan lays out the position of women in architecture and the rational that still supports inequality, however subconscious, within the profession.
