The present study aims to investigate the influence of Feminist and Women’s Right Movements to modern urban, architectural design. During the latest decades of the 20th century, the architecture science and practice, inspired of the feminist theory and ideas, attempted to mitigate or even abandon patriarchal stereotypes and structures that restricted the lives and rights of the women and had negative or detrimental consequences to other social groups. Despite the difficulties the project faced, including well-entrenched gender discriminations and broader, anachronistic attitudes, the feminist initiatives continue to inspire contemporary architectural practices in different socio-political and geographical contexts to these days. The analysis of the topic has been developed in three different directions in terms of domestic, private zone, public area and the domain of materiality. The paper attempts a selective overview of the main concerns arisen from feminist theory, which managed to motivate architectural practice at the end of the 20th century and seeks to explore their relevance to the present day. At the same time, it explores the activities of women architects and collaborative architectural practices from different regions of the world, in terms of idealism and theory development and design. Through the comparative juxtaposition of different design proposals, participations in architectural exhibitions and digital, architectural archives, this research paper highlights alternative approaches to argue and dispute with the patriarchal forms of power and their multiple manifestations in architectural design, and highlights the existing and urgent demand for equal and free coexistence of all social groups.
