Why are there so few women in the history of design? Why do previously well-known women become forgotten, and at what point can someone be considered successful? What effects of the gender debate are noticeable in today’s everyday working life? Are women judged today solely on the basis of their quality of work? This book prompts a look beneath the surface. Astrid’s work and pro?le are featured in the book and her article Beyond the Glass Ceiling: An Open Discussion, (first published in Elephant 6) is reproduced within. Buy the book here.
