Abstract:

This volume unravels the diverse roles women have played in the history and development of geology as a science predominantly in the UK, Ireland and Australia, and selectively in Germany, Russia and US. It covers the period from the late eighteenth century to the present day and shows how the roles that women have played changed with time. These included illustrators, museum collectors and curators, educationalists, researchers and geologists, many of whom were assistants to their male relatives. This book looks at all these forgotten women who contributed to this male-dominated subject.
