Gender and Environment/ Gender and Globalisation: 

Women's ecology movements had shown how the dominant models of economic development and scientific progress were based on a particular construction of production and knowledge which excluded women and Third World communities as producers of economic value and as generators of intellectual value. Economic globalisation deepens this exclusion and hence becomes a threat to the survival and integrity of local communities.


The goal of EVE Online is to be more than just a repository of information on the Internet. It is hoped this site will evolve into an important resource for the international ecofeminist community 

Ecofeminism on the Web: 





The Women in Human Settlements Development Programme concentrates on ensuring that UNHCS (Habitat) fulfills its mandate to promote women's equal participation in the Global Strategy for Shelter (GSS) and all human settlements development, and to ensure that all of UNCHS (Habitat) programmes, projects and activities clearly contain a gender perspective 



An international archive of women in architecture 

The website of the Association for Women in Architecture 

The contributions that women have made throughout the history of architecture are generally not recognized in architectural history, curriculum, or society. These pages contain information about issues women face in school, issues women face in the workplace, statistics concerning women in architecture schools and the profession, profiles of six outstanding women architects, and links to various architecture and women's studies sites 


This project presents an exploration into the lives of three women in the field of architecture today. Through interview, discussion, and the use of electronic, digital media a history of each individual's life unfolds. The hierarchy of information and design were linked from the early stages of the project and it is in the final form of the project that one can discover a format that is consistent in its presentation and navigational symbols. The goal was to enable the user to "walk through" the information and compare stories and experiences


Matrix, a non-profit women's architectural cooperative in London designed to help women's groups by finding and assessing potential building sites, aiding in obtaining funding for construction, and holding workshops to help women's groups understand and take part in the design process

The Habitat BP searchable database contains over 650 proven solutions to the common social, economic and environmental problems of an urbanizing world. It demonstrates the practical ways in which communities, governments and the private sector are working together to eradicate poverty, provide shelter, protect the environment and support economic development. The database is a powerful tool for: Analyzing current trends: find information on current human settlements issues; networking: get in touch with the people directly involved in implementation; capacity-building: material for developing new learning tools and methods; policy: learning from experience and policies that make a difference. .. and look particularly under 'Gender Equity and Equality'

Women and Architecture: Selected Bibliography and Guide to Sources


The International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA) was established in 1985 as a joint program of the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University Libraries at Virginia Tech. The IAWA began by collecting the papers of those who practiced at a time when there were few women in the field (i.e., before the 1950s). The IAWA, however, now collects the records of women working in the design fields of the built environment to fill the serious gaps in the availability of primary research materials for architectural, women's, and social history research. The purpose of the collection is to document the history of women's involvement in architecture by acquiring, preserving, storing, and making available the professional papers of women architects, landscape architects, designers, architectural historians and critics, urban planners, and the records of their organization
