How to create effective female infantry units?

Recently, the army try allowing women in infantry, the program was a disaster, because a sufficient fire power infantry unit need to carry a huge quantity of equipment, women's biology can't carry so much weight for a long time, without suffering health. Many female soldiers that was part of the trial, soon suffer health problem, including infertility. But if there are not enough men, women still need to be drafted to infantry eg Kurtish fighter at Northern Iraq have female infantry units. So, how to make female unit effective, when they can't have as much fire power as their male counterpart?

    So, in your opinion, why was the trial a disaster? Because those chosen for the trial are already soldiers and include one marine captain and even she suffer injury and now can't give birth.
