International Archive of Women in Architecture
The International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA) was established in 1985 as a joint program of the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University Libraries at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). The purpose of the program is to document the history of women's involvement in architecture by collecting, preserving, storing, and making available to researchers the professional papers of women architects, landscape architects, designers, architectural historians and critics, and urban planners, and the records of women's architectural organizations, from around the world. The IAWA focuses primarily on collecting the papers of those who practiced at a time when there were few women in the field (before the 1950's). The IAWA collects this information to fill serious gaps in the availability of primary research materials for architectural, women's, and social history research.

Women Weaving Webs Book
The Women.Weaving.Webs project was given birth in 1996. Julie Parker, our Web mistress, wanted to find answers for questions like: 'How can women help make the Internet the catalyst for spreading peace and harmony around the world?" Dr. Clarisse Behar-Molad, our executive director, wanted to reach out and talk to as many women as possible about how we can make an real impact in the business and technology worlds when it came to using the Internet. Both helped put together this site in order to share with you their dreams and ideas in the hope that we can all weave a stronger and better web to support our planet.
