Janice Kaplan

Janice Kaplan, New York Times bestselling author and the former editor-in-chief of Parade magazine, discusses her new book The Genius of Women. In this inspiring book, Janice explores why so many extraordinary women in history have gone unacknowledged—and celebrates the women geniuses past and present who, nevertheless, have triumphed. For this exclusive Hadassah program, Janice pays special attention to contributions of great Jewish women like U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, nuclear physicist Lise Meitner, composer Fanny Mendelssohn, playwright and director Tina Landau, and artist Sally Michel Avery. Their stories inspire women everywhere to move through life fearlessly and with passion. Watch here.
