Rock Stars, Part 4 - The Walls Come Tumbling Down

Summary

World War II ends, the troops return to their jobs and women are encouraged … to return to their homes and families. The post-war Era of Capitalism presents women with a new society-wide attitude about gender in the workplace, and a cultural-driven challenge to being a professional petroleum geologist – or a professional anything, for that matter. But some women continued to pursue their love of geology and fight for their place in the profession – along, decade-plus effort that finally changed with passage of Affirmative Action.
