Well what is the beginning of tall for a woman is "shortish" for a man, however I see a lot of tall women about and a lot of short or shortish men so there are a lot of cases where women are as tall or taller than men. On average most people say there is a 5 inch difference between the 2 sexes but that is just an average though.
Well yes it sounds like that your peak height was 5'2" so that is the female equivalent to the height of the guys that were giving you stick, it's ironic that they were going on about your height then.
I never knew that Lucy Pargeter was 5'6.5" until I came onto this site, I had read on the Internet before that she was 5'7" and on another occasion I may have read that she she was 5'7.5".

@ Nik - Good point! I've got to agree that what is 'tall' for a woman is considered 'shortish' for a man.
I believe that a 5ft7 inch woman is equivalent to a 6ft man, which certainly isn't small! I believe there is a 5 inch accepted difference between the 2 sexes. That would make me the same as a 5ft6-6.5 male and you equal to a woman of 5ft2.5!
I have thought in these terms for absolutely years, so when I've received jip from guys of 5ft7 or so, and I have, I've retorted "well I'm the same height as you!" ☝ **
I've just finished watching Emmerdale and Lucy's character was drinking wine tonight! Heaven help anyone who tries to tell her how to live her life and what's good and bad for her health! She wouldn't tolerate it!
It has just dawned on me that Lucy is the same equivalent height as her 'tough guy' brother, played by 5ft11.5 Jeff Hordley. How's that for a happy coincidence?
** ...this is bearing in mind that I used to be taller!

Well yes I may have classed Lucy Pargeter and Emma Atkins as weak tall but that is still tall! I wouldn't argue with someone who classed their heights as just being above average for women, but I would also have no problem with someone classing their heights as weak tall or indeed tall.
Well they are both within an height range that is common for men and women to fall into, they are both of a "common tall" height for a woman and their heights are "common small" heights for men.

@ Nik - Hello Nik! Yes, I can see how easily these two Emmerdale actresses stand out in the soap they star in as tall.
There was a lovely episode this week which I saw repeated this morning, where they go into a clubful of retired, eh, golfers - I think! But they were retired for certain and the flirty ladies start chatting them up and dancing with them! They did look, as you worded it, at least 'weak tall' considering how much people are sprouting up and well and truly tall by the standards of classic Hollywood actresses. I don't think they would qualify as 'model-girl tall' in this day and age though!
Anyway, shortly afterwards and still in festive mood, they bring them all back to the Woolpack! There you can see how these two are on par height-wise with the smaller men and well and truly tall in comparison to the other girls!🎶👭🎶

I once thought that Lucy Pargeter and Emma Atkins were 5'7" and 5'8" respectively until I found out differently. I suppose they are tall for soap stars and bothare quite tall or maybe a weak tall for the general population.

This girl is such a laugh in Emmerdale! With Emma Atkins, she is one half of a female double-act!
She has a grown-up son in the programme, but you wouldn't think so to look at her! A teenager, yes, but not an adult one!
She has recently been sporting a shorter, more modern hairstyle in a lovely up-to-date colour scheme and it really makes the most of her 5ft6 - 5ft7 height! Before, she appeared a little shorter as she was swamped by hair - not that it wasn't nice! Long hair is a statement, but then so is any hairstyle. That's why it's so important to get it 'just right!' 💇 👌
