She is. Even in the 1960s, it was weird to have women geologists.

I particularly like the part about her discovering what coprolites actually were. I didn't know bezoars were coprolites. It gives a whole other image of Harry stuffing one down Ron's throat in Half-Blood Prince. J.K. Rowling tries to make us think it is a stone taken from a goat's stomach, but now I know better.
