Women are generally absent from the official sources and texts of History. Oral history has been an essential component of collecting and making Women’s History. Interviews are a privileged method of the W@ARCH.PT research project because they allow women to speak with their own voice. And we want to listen!

On 23 October 2019 we interviewed Portuguese architect and politician Helena Roseta. She received us kindly in her office of the Lisbon Municipal Assembly during the last days when she served as President of this municipal institution. As part of the research project W@ARCH.PT and BGEWIA, we talked about the academic path, the references and the long and varied professional carreer.

We thank architect Helena for her generosity and availability. We hope to meet soon!
