> The portmanteau "fembot" (feminine robot) was popularized by the television series The Bionic Woman in the episode "Kill Oscar" (1976)[7] and later used in the Austin Powers films,[8] among others. "Robotess" is the oldest female-specific term, originating in 1921 from Rossum's Universal Robots, the same source as the term "robot".
