From the non-conformity with the refusal of the presence of women in the universe of architecture – in academia as in profession, in history, in practice and in theory – present in the discourse of the faculty of the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto, arises the need to expose the current landscape as a problem and bring it up for debate in the public sphere of the Faculty. This resulted in a concrete action that was divided into two moments: a collection of testimonies and their exhibition in the physical space of the school.
