you are failing to take account of the fact that the women"s movement has been hijacked. It is being used as a weapon to undermine the notion of the family, of belonging.
I have found that women architects are far more capable than you allow. The "I'm better than you" argument is meaningless. It is a question of roles within society.
some women may want to have a career, rather than to spend many years in raising a family - good luck to them. I believe that they should of course have equal opportunity, pay, etc. Why not ?
however there are others for whom the raising of a family is of great importance, and it is of equal importance to many men. The undermining of the family contains a germ of true evil - this has nothing to do with the resentment and/or greed often associated with embittered divorces. It is the sneering disrespect shown for children.
A society which disprespects children is no longer civilised.
When Madeleine Albright, as then US Ambassador to the UN, said that the confirmed figure of many hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children dead as a direct result of the sanctions was "acceptable", she betrayed her country, her gender and her faith, and placed herself on a level with Saddam Hussein.
How do you design a city where the children have no place ? Answer: you design it like Dachau or the camp at Guantanamo. Neither says anything about the inmates, but it says almost too much about the greedy barbarians who accept such a place being built and used in their name.
Were they men or women at Brown and Root who designed Guantanamo ? Who cares ?
