New German Research shows women aren't better at multitasking than men after all.

The study found men and women are equally bad.

University of Melbourne Associate professor of Sociology Leah Ruppanner says neither gender are superior when concentrating on two things at a time.

"Men and women are equally terribly at multitasking. They're slower, they're less efficient, they are more likely to get things wrong."
