In the next month, women will overtake men in the labor workforce, according to statistics from the US Labor Department. Way back in the 1950s, a science fiction author predicted what would happen when this came to pass.

Over at Hilobrow, Joshua Glenn writes:

What does this mean for men, you ask? John Broome, author of "It's a Woman's World," a science fiction story that appeared in the DC comic book Mystery in Space (#8), asked the same thing way back in July 1952. As the panels shown here demonstrate, Broome predicted that women would one day cruelly discriminate against men - force them to work in the home, while women ran businesses and fought wars.


But luckily, the men fight for their rights and come out back on top.
