Israeli women won't see combat Study finds females can't lift as much, march as far as males -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: October 20, 2003 2:55 p.m. Eastern © 2003 A military study conducted by the Israeli army has concluded women are a weaker sex, which means they will continue to be barred from most combat duties. According to the study's findings reported in the Washington Times, women safely can carry 40 percent of their body weight compared with 55 percent for men. Because military-age women weigh 33 pounds less than men on average, the total weight-lifting disparity between the sexes amounts to 44 pounds on average.
