Expectation for Japanese "Maria Curie"
Below is my comment on your article of " The Math Myth Page 55 Time, March 28, 2005".
Aside from the fundamental differences of brain structures between men and women, I do believe the real social needs could dramatically ignite the emergence of a few more female geniuses in the scientific fields.
Japan now faces a deadlock not only in its dragged economy but in its scientific accomplishments that is vital to our survival partly because the men-oriented society has long confined a large majority of women to their homes for housework even though they have superb mathematical or scientific ability.
Now that the real social needs exist in our country, people’s expectation becomes high that Japanese “Maria Curie” not “Einstein” will appear soon to save us.
