Nikola Tesla predicted the empowerment of women through wireless technology in 1926.
(July 29,2015) – Hollywood, CA
In 1926, John B. Kennedy published an interview with Nikola Tesla in Colliers magazine entitled “When Woman Is Boss.” Tesla predicted an era of gender equality and the empowerment of women through wireless technology. “It is clear to any trained observer . . . the struggle of the human female toward sex equality will end in a new sex order, with the female as superior. . . . It is not in the shallow physical imitation of men that women will assert first their equality and later their superiority, but in the awakening of the intellect of women.” Tesla believed this would be facilitated by wireless connectivity and education.
“Woman will ignore precedent and startle civilization with their progress.”
