Plus d'un siècle de femmes à la Société géologique du Nord : Reflet de leur place dans l'Enseignement Supérieur et la recherche française

Abstract : The Société géologique du Nord (SGN) is a French learned association open to all people involved in Earth Sciences. Its role since its creation at the end of the XIXth century (1870) is to be an intermediate between the academic, industrial and public circles. Therefore, the society is a privileged witness of the social and economic history of the north of France, and as such, of the international conflicts, ideological, social and economic changes, as well as the technological progresses that marked the XXth century. One of the major social changes is the claim by women of a better gender parity. Thanks to various actions, women progressively acquired the recognition of their rights and the access to male-considered circles. In the Nord – Pas-de-Calais, women are active members of the SGN, especially by means of their publications since 1891. Therefore, one can legitimately question what role women played in the SGN and which factors eased their role in geology, which is male deemed. The purpose of this study is thus to analyze the evolution of the number of female members of the SGN, as well as the number of their publications in the journals of the society during the XXth century. First, these numbers enable to follow the number of women in the SGN. Then, the documented trends are compared to the major events, which characterized the role of women in the French society. Finally, this paper highlights the ability of women to be able to follow university studies, especially at the Faculté des sciences de Lille, but also, more generally, to access all fields of Earth sciences.
