The Whispers of Mary Anning and Other Pioneer Women Geologists.

The online event will be in English and will take place on 30 March 2022, 17:30-18:30 CEST (Brussels time).
Some pioneer women paved the way in geology. However, they faced challenges for their voices to be heard and their remarkable work to be recognised at their time and even today some of them are forgotten. We have invited two great initiatives that pay tribute to these pioneer geologists: GEAS – Women Who Study the Earth and Mary Anning Rocks. ENGIE project coordinator, Éva Hartai, will be the host of the session. The speakers will be Anya Pearson from Mary Anning Rocks and Ana Ruíz Constan from GEAS.
GEAS is an illustrated book featuring 12 pioneer women geoscientists. The publication is a travel through time to give voice to women geologists of different times, historical contexts and nationalities. They all have something in common: they made an indelible mark on the strata of our knowledge. Spanish geologists Rosa María Mateos and Ana Ruíz Constan are the authors of this book and these 12 women were really an inspiration to them. The English and Spanish versions of GEAS will be released open access during the webinar! The remarkable palaeontologist Mary Anning is one of the women showcased in the book and she leads us to the great initiative Mary Anning Rocks.
Evie Swire was nine years old when she heard for the first time about Mary Anning, a woman who lived close to her hometown, Dorset, and whose findings would change the world. Evie got to know more and more about Mary Anning and was fascinated by her work and findings in palaeontology. Consequently, Evie asked her mother, Anya Pearson, to take her to see a statue of Mary Anning. Evie assumed there would be a statue of such a remarkable woman in Lyme Regis, the palaeontologist’s hometown. But to Evie’s surprise, there was not a statue of Mary Anning there. To change this, Anya and Evie started an energetic crowdfunding campaign to build a statue of Mary Anning in Lyme Regis. The official unveiling of the statue of Mary Anning will be this year, on 21 May 2022, and Anya will tell us more about it during the webinar.
