Despite decades of efforts to improve gender equity in Geophysics, women remain underrepresented in the profession. Increasing the number of women in Geophysics requires addressing the experiences of women already working in the field, and those in training for a career in this area. Intersectionality is a theoretical framework drawn from Black feminist scholarship that offers a useful lens through which to examine the current circumstances for women in Geophysics and to envision different future conditions. A review of ongoing efforts to reduce sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination in the Geosciences broadly complements this exploration of women’s experiences in Geophysics.
