Big muscle women, you like

In a lot of cases women are indeed stronger than men. Women have greater tenacity, sustenance and staying power that is not found in men.

The strength of women is mostly due to their physical make up and form as one part of the human race designed to bear children and a central part of the procreation cycle and system.

Because each woman needs to carry the fetus in their wombs for nine months, they have been physiologically made in such a way to be able to carry on with life as best as they can without any major hiccups during those nine months carrying a baby that is slowly growing inside them.

The final moment, child birth, needs another bout of strength to get the baby out. It's a period of labor pains, pushing and heaving till the baby is delivered.

All this means women are indeed stronger than men in terms. They need to be because of the load that continues to be imposed upon them after birth.

And from this, their strength blossoms in the rest of society. Yet sadly, although they are strong, they are discriminated against as well, and that goes not only for the developing countries but in the West as well.

I don't believe that one is stronger than the other. You talk a lot about how women are stronger physically. This I do not believe. Child birth is amazing and i'm sure very unpleasant at times but it is hard to say that women are stronger because of that. Men are women are equally as strong, but in very different ways.

I think women have been made, created in such a way as to withstand greater pressure simply because of the rearing aspect. I do know that men are physically stronger, but I think this is a debate that can go on and on.

I totally agree with you. No man will agree with you, unless they are given the chance to experience what women go through.

This is all subjective though. Using the old 'women are stronger cause they live through child birth' argument is a null point. There is no way to make a comparison as one half of the tested population doesn't have the makeup to support the actual test.

We have also managed to come up with so many forms of 'strong'.

How about you break it down like this

strength

stress (ability to withstand)

agility (generally perceived as flexibility, mobility and balance)

speed

motor (reflexes)

and what ever else you see fit to put in there.

I think when women talk about child birth and womens own strength it comes down to pain threshold and stress.

I once read an article on a female ironman triathlete. She had recently returned to the sport after giving birth and was now in the best form of her career. When asked where her elevated results came from she replied "After childbirth nothing hurts by comparison."

This didn't make here stronger. It simply put a new extreme on what she thought was 'a lot of pain'.

Wow! You really hand it to women. Even I have never thought that we could be psychologically stronger because we can bear children. I never thought about in that terms, but now that you have presented it that way, I think you have a point. Thank you for your respect of women and what we go through. Even though most women have the mothering instinct, I do think men sometimes can be more tender and understanding. I guess it depends on the person. Great hub!
