Which Badass Female Geniuses Do You Most Admire?

Tell us about the women who have inspired you.

Which women (historical or contemporary) do you think don't get the appreciation and acknowledgement they deserve?

Such as Lynn Nottage, the playwright that's won a Pulitzer and just about every other award there is.

Maybe you're in love with Miranda July, the contemporary filmmaker, author and artist who's a straight-up renaissance woman?

Or maybe you think Mae Carol Jemison, the first African-American woman astronaut, deserves more recognition?

She enrolled into Stanford University aged just 16, and eventually went on to complete a Doctor of Medicine degree at Cornell, before landing a job at NASA. All the while, she's a dancer and has choreographed several dance shows, too.

Or maybe Kate Bush, who not only writes her own music but produces it too, and wrote her first hit aged just 18, but is rarely held to the same acclaim as male musicians who've achieved as much?

So, tell us your favourite women geniuses in the comments below, and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
