There’s a myriad of talented African women practicing architecture, but a lack of publicity and exposure presents difficulties in highlighting their work. The underrepresentation of women in architecture is an industry-wide issue not only in Africa, but in western societies like the United States and Europe as well. Statistics from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) note that only 17 percent of registered architects (as of 2020) are women. In 2018, a report published by the Architects’ Council in Europe found that women comprised 39 percent of professionals across 26 European countries. In Africa, statistics are hard to come across, but the few that are available suggests that the representation of women in the field is even lower.
