I had volunteered in Nepal doing construction work, seen women carried sacks of cement, 2 gallons of water in one go (one left one right), shovel dirt into buckets, chucking wet cement into mixer and tons of other strength things. Some of them have small build, like my mouth went agape because I would have never equate those bodies with the physical strength. Seriously, gender is not a very reliable yardstick anymore…
