|Abstract: ||This article looks at the place of women in geology primarily from a historic viewpoint but also covering academia and geography. The role that women have played in the development of the science of geology has varied tremendously throughout history but is intimately linked the the context of women's place in society. Two issues will be looked at in detail - the effect of travel to field locations and the place of female role models (or the lack of them). In the realm of academic, the article will examine whether female geologists have favoured palaeontology and consider what other European countries think about female scientists and female geologists.|
