Janice Kaplan, THE GENIUS OF WOMEN
Mar 23rd, 2020 by zibbyowens
Janice Kaplan is the author of The Genius of Women: From Overlooked to Changing the World. This multilayered book tells stories of extraordinary women throughout history and weaves them into a larger narrative regarding the social expectations and biases women still face today. Janice is incredibly intelligent (although she won’t admit she’s a genius!!). I loved chatting with her about why most Americans believe geniuses are men, the idea that society is to blame for the tendency to self-deprecate, and the childhood memory that pushed Janice to keep researching and writing this book. She includes wonderful insights on how to stop buying into stereotypes and understand our full potential!
