Diversity in Mathematics

I recently stumbled upon an open problem in Mathematics. It entails reading the wikipedia articles of  two great self taught Mathematicians, Sophie Germain and Srinivasa Ramanujan.

On Ramanujan's article there is a full section titled "Other Mathematicians' Views of Ramanujan".















On Sophie Germain's article there is no such section. Instead there's an even fuller section titled "Criticisms".


These two sections are where the two articles differ in tone the most.

Why?
