@Glow, close but you're off by an inch.
In USA, average female height is 5'4 and average male height is 5'9.
So that makes the difference between the genders at 5 inches not 6.
A 5'8 man would therefore be the equivalent of a 5'3 woman not a 5'2 woman.

@Silent d She can't be only 5'8, because Malin Akerman is 5'8. In "27 Dresses" Katherine is clearly taller than Malin.

She's tall. I always thought that she's 5'9.

Could be 170-171 Rob?
[Editor Rob: I'd be surprised if she was just that.]

Is more easy to say there is a 1.07-1.09 height ratio between sexes.

just to add to the comments about male and female heights here - girls tend to grow faster than guys when it comes to height. I (being a guy) was about 5'2 or 5'3 most of the way through high school, easily one of the shortest in the whole year group but when I passed 16 I began to grow and now I'm 23 and a strong 5'11. So I'm sure some of the guys will catch up but on the whole people are definitely getting taller. I'm one of the shortest of my friend group - surprising as I'm only a shade under 6' but most of the guys are about 6'1 and 6'2 and it's surprisingly noticeable.

Actually Luna, 5'9" for a woman is about the equivalent of 6'3" for a guy.

If you go by average heights in most western countries, all you do is deduct the six inches from the male height to find the female equivalent. It should be as follows:

5ft Female = 5'6 Male (think Tom Cruise)
5'1 Female = 5'7 Male
5'2 Female = 5'8 Male
5'3 Female = 5'9 Male
5'4 Female = 5'10 Male
5'5 Female = 5'11 Male
5'6 Female = 6 ft Male
5'7 Female = 6'1 Male
5'8 Female = 6'2 Male
5'9 Female = 6'3 Male
5'10 Female = 6'4 Male
5'11 Female = 6'5 Male
6ft Female = 6'6 Male

...And so on.

I've stood next to men who were marginally shorter than me (I'm 5'9") and thought how petite they looked...short legs usually and small bone structure, often a bit diminutive, making them their gender's equivalent of a slightly petite woman. It's not an insult but it just put it in perspective.

5 foot 8.

This conversation is silly. The average height for women in 2012 is 5'4.3" tall. I'm 5'8", and people frequently comment saying I'm tall. I suppose being slender in addition to that does help the illusion of great height, but no one can argue 5'8" is average when it is nearly 4 inches taller than what average truly is. I'm not a giant, I'm not insanely tall, but I am relatively tall in comparison to those around me and to the average height. I'm not yet 16 years old.

5 foot 8. Girls are getting taller now. I heard it is the hormones in junk food.

I have to agree with Luna. Im exactly 511 (180 cm) and 18 years old and in my classes (Im from germany so im mostly with the same people in different classes)
although im the tallest girl there are quite a few girls (I think like 4 or 5) who look to be above 173 cm (58) and my best friend is also just 1 cm below my height but i dont really feel that tall. Also there are just 3 guys who are taller than me so i think girls are getting taller these days or something.

@Luna

I don't know where are you from, but in my country 175 is tall and definitely 175 tall girls do stand out in a crowd. But it is you right to consider yourself small or tall or very tall, that is not my business.

Get over yourself. Just accept the fact that not everyone thinks you are tall. I see lots of girls at uni around 175. It may be tall for a 50 year old woman, but it is only relatively tall for a young one. And no, 5 ft 9 doesn't stand out in a crowd. Not to mention that 6 ft 2 is much taller for a man than 5 ft 9 is for a woman.
I am taller than you and I don't even consider myself "very tall".
And why are you accusing Kostas of trolling? He is just stating his opinion. Try to be more open-minded.
