AJ Women in Architecture: why the campaign is important and what needs to change

Women in Architecture judges, Doreen Lawrence, Eva Jiricna, Moira Gemmill and Martha Thorne, plus sponsor Roca and AJ editor Christine Murray, on the awards and why they are working

Now in its third year the AJ Women in Architecture campaign was launched to promote roles models for women working in practice.

Awards judge Doreen Lawrence commented: ‘The last three years, since these awards was started, has seen a growth in how you recognise women. It’s a really positive way forward.’

Director of the V&A, Moira Gemmill added: ‘It is important that we do whatever we can to make sure that women have equal opportunities in architecture. They are not equal at the moment and this is one way in which we can try and redress that.’
