"Anomalies: Pioneering Women In Petroleum Geology 1917-2017" documentary video by Robbie Rice Gries Anomalies-Pioneering Women in Petroleum Geology: 1917-2017 is a celebration of individual courage, tenacity, and professionalism as well as a timely reminder of our past, when male-dominated professions excluded women. The social structure outside this profession amplified the struggle for equality: the inability to vote, the dictate that women should not work outside the home when married, the pervasive practice of lower pay for equal work, the paucity of advancement opportunities, and the lack of recognition in companies and associations. it spans a stretch of time virtually equal to the time span that men were finally being valued as petroleum geologists.
