The SAH Women in Architecture Bibliography is a comprehensive project in-progress of the SAH WiA AG Registers Committee, a groundbreaking effort to document and recognize the essential role women have played in the creation of the built environment, from practicing architects, urban, landscape, and interior designers, to artists and craftsmen, to the many scholars who have informed, advocated, and educated through their publications, exhibitions, and numerous public and private programs around women in architecture. While there have been bibliographies and collections developed on the topic, no effort has been made to organize a major inclusive database of books and theses about the contribution of women to the built environment. These efforts of the SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group have just launched, and the initial open e-access edition containing c. 1,100 titles has been published online in July and in August 2021. The Society of Architectural Historians and the SAH WiA AG are committed to creating the bibliography that will lead current and future generations of professionals to the core literature of inclusive, powerful writings by and about women in the integral field of architecture.
