Hugely appreciative of @_piers_taylor for nominating Sarah for the 2019 #ribagoldmedal as part of Part W’s #alternativeribagoldmedal campaign. .

For those who are new to The Part W collective…
@partwcollective is an action group of women – including Sarah – campaigning for gender parity across the built environment. .
.
In it’s latest campaign, the collective is asking people for suggestions of women that they think would be worthy winners of the Gold Medal.
The campaign has been launched to highlight the fact that there has only been one woman as sole winner of the RIBA Royal Gold Medal in its 171-year history, and make people question why this gender imbalance has happened. .
.
“We’re very keen to stress that we are delighted to see Royal Medal continuing to be awarded, and that we support the award and it’s aims,” said Founder, Zoë Berman. “This is intended as a playful way to draw attention to important issue.” .
