In the coming years we may see more female CEOs in Tyler and Longview, and more women leaders of schools and organizations in East Texas. If nothing else, this will give you something to argue about with your co-workers today at work.

For the first time in the history of IQ testing, psychologists say women have a higher IQ than men. We KNEW it, right ladies?

Why are women getting smarter?

Researchers have found that in the last 100 years the IQ scores of both men and women have risen, but women’s have risen faster.

One possible explanation is that women’s lives have become more demanding. Women are multitasking between raising a family and keeping the careers afloat. You’ve probably seen us in action, chewing a bite of food while washing the dishes so we can hurry and unload the dryer while we simultaneously catch up on work email.

All of that may make us stressed and worn to a frazzle, but it turns out it’s making us smart too!

And if you’ve got daughters, they’re probably a whizzes with smart phones and computers in their young lives. It’s girl power galore. Be afraid, be very afraid.
