Psychologists say female IQ scores have soared above men for the first time in 100 years, and it’s all down to the fact the fairer sex are better multi-taskers.
Professor James Flynn, the world-renowned authority on IQ tests who conducted the research, explains: “In the past century, the IQ scores of both men and women have risen but women’s have risen faster.
“This is a consequence of modernity. The complexity of the modern world is making our brains adapt and raising our IQ.
“The full effect of modernity on women is only just emerging.” 
One theory is that multi-tasking modern women, who juggle careers and raising a family, are becoming more intelligent as a result of their demanding lifestyles.
Furthermore, after centuries of playing second fiddle to men, ­scientists say women are finding new confidence and realising they might be more clever than men.
