Des carrières sous le plafond de verre. Les femmes architectes en Lettonie soviétique

Abstract : Latvia stands out by the speed and scope at which the profession of architect feminized over the 20th century, whether in Europe or in the Soviet Union, which annexed Latvia during the Second World War. This article focuses on the factors and limits of feminization of this little professional group after 1945. It questions the Soviet and local mechanisms of feminization of this profession and the international transformations of this trade so as to show the discrepancy between, on the one had, training and recruitment, favorable to women, and on the other hand a professional world governed by just as powerful sexist exclusion mechanisms until de 1980s. These mechanisms are interpreted as arrangements after which women’s progression in the profession is used to absorb the constraints inherent to the trade.
