It also strikes me that men would be judging the criteria of genius, based on
men's favorite pursuits and passions. Women may have been cooking, sewing and

Genius is a value call. The things we do are often predicated on what we
value, and what we value is decided by "the collective" or religion or
whatever - all too often.
