Maryam Mirzakhani, a 40-yo Iranian mathematician, professor of mathematics at Stanford University. She just died of cancer. What a loss. Won the prestigious Fields Medal, the math equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

She, and not a fictional comic book character, should be the role model of young girls everywhere. Young women should be gushing over her, not Gal Gadot who is just an actress.

She exemplifies what a human being should strive to be: classy, educated, a contributing member of society, regardless of her gender, looks, and ethnic background.
Quote:
Mirzakhani said she enjoyed pure mathematics because of the elegance and longevity of the questions she studies.

"It is like being lost in a jungle and trying to use all the knowledge that you can gather to come up with some new tricks, and with some luck you might find a way out," she added.
...

Mirzakhani's impact "will live on for the thousands of women she inspired to pursue math and science," said Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne.

He described her as "a humble person who accepted honors only with the hope that it might encourage others to follow her path."
...

Mirzakhani became known on the international mathematics scene as a teenager, winning gold medals at both the 1994 and 1995 International Math Olympiads -? and finished with a perfect score in the latter competition.
...

Mirzakhani also collaborated with Alex Eskin, a University of Chicago mathematician "to take on another of the most-vexing problems in the field: the trajectory of a billiards ball around a polygonal table," Stanford News said.

"The challenge began as a thought exercise among physicists a century ago and had yet to be solved."

The duo published a 200-page long paper on the subject in 2014 hailed as "the beginning of a new era" in mathematics, according to Stanford News.

Why try to trash Gal Godot? The woman is accomplished in her own right and young girls/women should emulate her.

Like Mirzakhani, Gadot is successful in her endeavors: modeling and acting. She also served two years as an enlisted soldier for the Israel Defense force.

There are many paths for success, there really is no need to knock some one down while trying to prop someone else up.

Rey & Jyn from the new Star Wars movies are far more looked up to than Wonder Woman. Fictional, yes, but heroic and strong.

Who are you speaking to, men or women? Bc men favor the boob over brains the vast majority of times. And women have been taught their appearance is everything.

I suppose we need to start over? 

DVaz --- 67 days ago -

Bc men favor the boob over brains the vast majority of times.

And women generally prefer $$$ to brains. What's your point? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 67 days ago -

What do you mean? When choosing a man or for themselves?? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 67 days ago -

Not really. But, butts are good.

I'm a face guy. You can always change her body, "Butt-her-face."

Most women will marry an ugly SOB if he has money. Then, take half from him in court + child support. These should explain it for you -

Shallow women do this, not the majority of women.

Just like some men are a-holes, but most aren't.

I scored big time and got both.

Count your blessings, Mark. You have a good woman there.


The topic is about why we don't esteem the brainy women. And the answer is bc we esteem appearance first, period. And, that is mostly bc men are VISUAL. When women figured this out, even they became beauty/appearance obsessed.

I've never seen a guy be all gaga over a brainiac female. They get that way wen they see beauty. It is what it is. I've NEVER had a guy say, omg, SiFi your brains, your brains!! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 66 days ago -

its about the place of entry into the potential relationship. Your correct when you say men are visual. That's the first thing a man notices. However, beauty is wasted on an idiot woman. She can look good and then say something profoundly stupid and ruin everything to such a degree that beauty cannot overcome. We (men) want the total package, beauty, brains, personality, et. al.

Women do too, they want manly yet sensitive. They want a man easy on the eyes. They want the income and security benefits of a type A man but not the other traits.

ALL moms are Wonder Woman.

ALL moms are Wonder Woman.

I would hope. But the truth is some are worthless POS.

Yes, In a perfect world...I am a mom. And I am sure there were times when people "Wondered" about me! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 66 days ago -

You come across as a perfectly rational and normal mom.

I'm talking about the abusive kid torturing alcoholic primordial scum of humanity that had children. God has a purpose for those children and hopefully eternal damnation for their "moms".

We've never met.

ALL moms are Wonder Woman.?


If you can do your job in pajamas it doesn't make you Wonder Woman.
