dc.description.abstract The objective of CARYATID is to understand the main challenges facing women in Architecture and provide a resource to inform women and prospective architects. In order to become better educated about the social challenges of the architecture profession, research from the past century and data from studies by the American Institute of Architects has been gathered. Work from authors like Kathryn Anthony, Sherry Ahrentzen, and Linda Grout were compiled. The main areas of focus are the "glass ceiling" issues, wage disparities, and discrimination. Also, CARYATID includes gender issues in architecture education. Because disparities are not caused solely by the opposite gender, understanding how women constrain each other is addressed. By comparing data from all research, it is possible to define the major issues facing women within the profession and how to confront social constraints. Though they may still exist, understanding and exposing them can provide an opportunity to gain enough strength to overcome the issues. With a little more impetus, women will be able to shatter one of the few remaining glass ceilings.
