“This essay will describe current areas of research concerning women in architecture and the physical aspects of urban planning and will suggest areas in which additional research is needed. It will provide a selective discussion of significant recent work rather than attempt a comprehensive bibliography. The first section deals with women's participation in the design professions; the second with the impact of environmental design on women's lives and work” (Hayden and Wright, 1976, 924).
