No Fear

by David Meyer

Bestselling author Janice Kaplan offers an honor roll of accomplished women – fearless geniuses, all.

A recent survey shows that 90% of people think of geniuses as male. That’s the patriarchal norm. Today’s genius women overcame that limiting notion – and many others – to thrive in arenas where men have been the gatekeepers. As bestselling author Janice Kaplan recounts, these women bypassed traditional male-female roles by believing in themselves and their abilities.

The issues that genius women face have remained constant through the generations.Janice Kaplan

Kaplan writes for the 90% who need to know that women still face obstacles akin to the ones their sisters faced hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago. Yet, some triumphed, and Kaplan tells their stories.
