This thesis explores the experience of being a woman industrial designer, from her circumstances and motivations to study industrial design, through graduation from university and to professional life. It contains both an analysis of in-depth interviews with 19 female graduates from the industrial design course at the University of Technology Sydney (Australia), and a public exhibition of both their work and their reflections on being female designers.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
