What's a modern girl to do?

Maureen Dowd writes an interesting piece in the New York Times about the evolution of the relationship between the two genders, and how early feminism appears to have been reversed in favor of more traditional gender roles. Interesting reading overall, but his snippet caught my attention:
A 2005 report by researchers at four British universities indicated that a high I.Q. hampers a woman's chance to marry, while it is a plus for men. The prospect for marriage increased by 35 percent for guys for each 16-point increase in I.Q.; for women, there is a 40 percent drop for each 16-point rise.
