I’ve been working on this article for years (in my head), so it’s amazing to finally see it in print! This is for Medium’s new science section, “Elemental” and it’s about how women are just as physically strong as men, and maybe stronger.

If you disagree, read through the science I put together here, and think about how we have always defined what physical strength is—as those things men have. Whereas the things women are bodily powerful in don’t “count.” Why would that be?

For those of you who knew my grandma, she makes several appearances here!
