IS DESIGN STILL A BOYS’ CLUB?

ETC Interesting article commenting on the lack of great female designers. I think there are plenty of stupendous female designers, however, we just don’t know them by name. We know them through their work. Hella Jongerius makes a really true statement in the article, “To make it to the top, you need to be outspoken, self-confident and entrepreneurial, apart from having design talent. I have taught many talented young women and tried like hell to push them, but most were too shy.”
