The Feminist Myth of the Dumb Housewife Debunked in 1971 by Berkeley University

      The idea that working/career women were smarter than housewives which was peddled by the feminist movement was shown to be false in a study on IQ done in 1971. Housewives actually outscored the working women but we never hear about this study today do we?

The stereotype of the dumbed down housewife was most famously created by Betty Friedan in "The Feminine Mystique" which is the book that created second wave feminism which described women as slaves in comfortable concentrated camps that needed to obsess about having a career in order to evolve as a gender.
