As we are nearing International Women's Day, Dezeen launched a gender equality initiative called 'Move the Needle,' in order to advocate the public representation of women in the architecture and design fields. In its announcement, Dezeen points out an increasing number of females who are taking design courses, as well as references the #MeToo movement.

Essentially, this gender equality initiative seeks to "make women more visible." It raises awareness of the predominant male representation in "conferences, award juries, prizes and boardrooms" within the architecture and design sector. Dezeen implores readers who are willing to be a part of the gender equality initiative, to leave a comment or send an e-mail. The ultimate goal is to better the global visibility of women in the industry via public events, in order to shift the balance of power.
