Zaha Hadid: On Being Arab And An Architect
"Being an Arab woman and a modern architect certainly don't exclude each other - when I was growing up in Iraq, there were many women architects. You cannot believe the enormous resistance I've faced just for being an Arab, and a woman on top of that. It is like a double-edged sword. The moment my woman-ness is accepted, the Arab-ness seems to become a problem." The Guardian (UK) 11/13/12
