Who's smarter, men or women?

Since intelligence quotients have been recorded starting a century ago, females have routinely scored as much as five points behind men. That gap has been narrowing in recent years, and now ladies have the lead.

Women also have a slightly higher potential intelligence than men and are only now taking full advantage of it.
