"I used to not like being called a ‘woman architect.’ I’m an architect, not just a woman architect. The guys used to tap me on the head and say ‘you’re okay for a girl.’ But I see an incredible amount of need from other women for reassurance that it can be done, so I don’t mind anymore.” - Dame Zaha Hadid
