Can women be architects?

I'm at school and thinking about my future. I have wanted to become an architect for three years & recently I've been battling with myself over whether I am clever enough, am willing to give it the time and whether it is a secure career path to follow.

It is one of the three: an architect, graphic designer, vet.

I want to do something different to what my families jobs all are. My dad is in e-learning and my mum in journalism (so both media and marketing) and though they are perfectly nice jobs I want to do something a bit out there. I want to be successful. However I will want a family. I will have a bit of a life outside of work.

I have also been reading lots of things that say architecture is a sexist career path.

But I know that if I don't try then I will always say 'what I really wanted to be was an architect' and I feel although graphic design would be the obvious option it would be a bit of a disappointment for myself,could I try architecture and fall back on graphics? Thanks Thank you so much for all of your answers! You've really given me a lot of confidence and think I will definiately make a go of it if I am still as keen in a few years time.
Thank you again !! :)

If that's what you want, then go for it! But, like you said, if you want it to be your job you will have to chose that and dedicate yourself to it (my point is you can't have half your heart in your job. It doesn't work). And yes, you want to have a job that you'll love. You want to make decisions without regrets (or with the least amount of regrets). True, it probably is a sexist field. But hey, the first women doctors were pioneers, too. In fact women have been plowing their way through all kinds of jobs despite sexism, and that's how they've made a difference. I guess what I'm trying to say is if it's what you love, than don't let anything stop you.

Oh and btw if you want to have a family someday than that can totally work... I have a relative who lives out in the country and is an architect and builds houses in the summer-ish seasons and he has a family so it can work :)

God Bless :)

Of course!!! lol

Women can be whatever they want, including architects! And it sounds like you have a great plan! Go for architecture, and give it your best shot. If, and that's a big IF, it doesn't work out or you realize it's not what you want after all, then try graphic design.

I think architecture IS traditionally a male career, but so is everything else, like doctors, surgeons, archaeologists, musicians, artists, psychologists, etc. lol

I'm in Psychology at university, and I'm going to try and get my PhD and become a clinical psychologist. I feel the same way sometimes. I doubt my abilities, and I wonder what my life will be like if I have that career, but then I realize it's what I want to do with my life and that I am smart, so of course I can do it. :)

Good luck with everything!
