In genius studies, greatest female geniuses refers to []

Overview

In 2011, Libb Thims started the “IQ:150+ | Smartest woman ever”, a female counterpart to the earlier popular “IQ:200+ | Smartest person ever” article and video series.

In 2019, Thims, after realizing that attempts to rank IQs of females “separately”, from males, was a mistake, in Hmolpedia 2020, started the “smartest female geniuses” page.

Top 2K minds

In Nov 2020, Thims, amid migrating Hmolpedia 2020 to Hmolpedia, added a male / female sort column to the top 2000 geniuses and minds tables, thereby allowing one to “see” female “geniuses” in purity, amid the competition, with no bias to “sex”, as viewable on rankable “sex” column of the “full list”. The rate of female geniuses is 3.84% among the top 1,100 total geniuses, presently. The following is a work-in-progress of females ranking, trimmed from the top 200 minds rankings:

“Every woman is worth more when she learns to read.”
Ramon Llull (c.1300), Publication (Ѻ)

— Oscar Wilde (1890), The Picture of Dorian Gray (Ѻ)
“A life spent in the routine of science need not destroy the attractive human element of a woman’s nature.”
