Sheila Levrant de Bretteville presents a lecture exploring the relationship between feminism and design. She first discusses her involvement at the California Institute of the arts, documenting her interest in teaching and research. She then explains her engagement in graphic design and her interest in mass production and new technologies. De Bretteville later documents a series of projects that relate built form to feminism. Among the examples she explores in this argument are curtain walls and domestic planning.
