Correction: Maryam Mirzakhani won the Field's Medal in 2014, the most prestigious award in mathematics, which is often described as the mathematician's "Nobel Prize".
Corpsi just because women are women doesn’t mean they are dumb. Girls or boys can be either smart. Believe me there are a lot of males that are dumb too so don’t you doubt us women. But I certainly agree that what gameitderp said was wrong.

In my school, it’s an inside joke with the boys at the school at how smarter the girls are, whether biased by the teacher or if they were just plain smarter, which I was almost conditioned to believe through elementary school. Whenever there was some academic contest, we’d have a small laugh at how almost all of the top 10 winners were female. One time there was a speech contest around middle school, and one of the winners was a speech about how females were treated as less than males when out of the top 8, only one was male.

It usually depends on how much a human studies. Girls may be more likely to study than boys which would probably make them smarter. But if boys are more likely to study then they would be smarter. (I’m not sure if what I said is true but I think it’s good)

I'm a girl my self, and I think that other girls in the comments shouldn't feel so offended. If boys in general have a little bit of a higher IQ that doesn't mean you're stupid or anything. I know for a fact several boys that are smarter and less smart than me. At the end of the day it doesn't really matter. Just live your life and GET OVER IT

Volkan İlkehan (7 days ago)
In school girls always seem smarter because they mature before boys but even then boys have bigger brains even if they are at the same size and height boys have bigger brains and IQ tests actually show that men have higher IQs so women are basically worse than men at everything other than giving birth
Desirae Baker (7 days ago)
I always felt & noticed that girls were smarter than the boys around me. We lived in a small to medium sized town where most people work at a large ATV factory or an electronics company of equal size. That can be a factor. I've never heard anyone say that boys were smarter, "Girls sit & listen better than the boys." "Boys are just too active & can't focus." Blah blah blah. I thought it was rude then, but it seemed true. Most men I know now do mechanical jobs or labor while most ladies are in office jobs or stay home moms. Most women I know have a side hustle like AVON or essential oils. I'd like to see more women doing a "man's job" like construction, energy production, & labor. The few ladies I know in the oil & gas industry (one a ATV factory lead) is making so much money it's insane.

Here I will just summarize this for you based on stats and this is a no brained question boys are better than girls just face it we are stronger and smarter. No girl will be as good as a soccer player like Messi or Ronaldo. No girl will be as good as a basketball player like mj steph currey Lebron. No girl will be as good at baseball or football. The only sport girls might be better is volleyball. Girls are to emotional and don’t have the courage and strength to be as good.

Anonymous Person (10 days ago)
I think that stereotyping is a major barrier for women. For example, in the video, it mentions that gaming is a guy thing, and scrapbooking is a girl thing. I am a girl, and I don’t know about you, but I’ve scrapbooked like twice, and game every day. It’s honestly kind of stupid to assume what each gender would do when everyone is different. You may not agree, but there are still hints of sexism in everyday things, even though a lot of the times we overlook it. Stereotypes cause people to expect more from the male gender than the female, and the differences in the way people treat the genders takes a large part in that. Society could put a lot of expectations onto a boys shoulders, and not let the girls have enough to strive to do better. It could even be the other way around. And I’m not saying only girls have it hard, I’m sure the boys have struggles themselves, but my point is that no matter what gender you are, even transgender, you shouldn’t be judged on any different context than any other gender. I don’t believe that either gender is, as a whole, smarter than the other, but instead that we are all equal, it’s just the amount of effort we put into gaining knowledge that makes someone presumably smarter or less smart then the other. And girls and boys alike all have that choice. To scale the wall of stereotyping is a great feat, but society is still treating people unfairly. We just have to be strong enough to deal with anything that try’s to stop us. If you made it all the way down here, thanks for reading this, and also, please don’t be rude because this is just my opinion. It shouldn’t stop you from thinking differently, but I hope you at least understand where I’m coming from. Have a great day, and keep being awesome!

Thats what people don't understand. Culture and environment are sooo influential. It doesn't matter that "on paper" the genders are equal if we raise a society that treats each differently. Not different as in individual human beings but as crappy bias unfair stereotypes. Think how brilliant the world would have been if we encouraged the other HALF of the populatation to think of ideas, solutions and innovations instead of only limit it to the kitchen and a kid 👎🏽

Let's first define what being smart means and then we can talk about smth. Probably there are at least slight differences between men and women in terms of specific intellectual abilities since from evolutionary perspective demand for certain intellectual skills varied by gender.

Intelligence is not based on gender..it is based on a person..i am a keralite.during my high school studies my social teachers just used to say that boys are more intelligent than girls.during that moment we girls used to get irritated and opposed the statement..All i have to conclude is that intelligence is based on a specific person..girls can be smarter and dumb..boys can be smarter and dumb..but the myth exist in my towns today and i am irritated of that.. i don't have the will to understand them the truth.even educated people believes in it.

I have become incredibly confused with this whole dispute over male vs female intelligence. Am I the only one who sees more people complaining about "feminazis", than I actually see legitimate irrational feminists? Indeed, the third wave feminism is full of nonsense, but even when a research states that women and men have more or less identical intelligence on average, people are still not satisfied. "Our society is wired to support the idea that girls are more intelligent";can someone please explain to me how so? Whether someone states women are more or equally intelligent, I never see people satisfied. I could be completely wrong, since this is just from my view, but I really don't see how our society "supports irrational feminism beliefs", when it very clearly does not. If anything (again, I could be completely wrong since this is just from my perspective), I see a lot more people finding comments that degrade women acceptable, and going out of their way to say that men are superior creatures to them. This has turned into complete and utter absurdity, women AND men are equally needed for the specie's survival, and each of them have their own important roles. From what I saw, women are just as capable as men at doing masculine jobs, but they simply don't have the will to participate because we are different. It has been proven time and time again, that both men and women can be just as successful in the STEM field, but women usually sooner or later choose a different path, and that's okay. People need to understand that feminity isn't any lesser than masculinity, and to stop shaming people who choose a more feminine role. This hatred towards feminity is especially projected onto feminine guys who are constantly called "pussies", "momma's boys" etc. I believe that once feminity stops being projected in a bad light, we can truly live in a more peaceful environment.

I agree with the studies that guys are better overall, but more polarized (worst guy significantly worse than worst woman) Also the Bible obviously sides with boys. If you are religious and think they are equal... Well that's weird. Boys and girls aren't equals... They are sequels. And the sequal is always worse than the original.
