It depends on what strength you are refering to. Mental strength in the 21st century is more important than physical strength. Emotional intelligence, manipulation limited by morals and mental health are far more important in today's world. Men in the past have been the hunters, farmers, constructors and more often given tasks which require physical ...

Jobs that absolutely need male strength? No, none whatsoever. Jobs in which more strength would be useful are all around us. I'll pick child care as an example. I'm a father, and I count physical strength as a very useful asset. One use case is to carry my sleeping 6-year-old without waking him up, and managing to hold him with one arm while opening the ...

In my job (logistics mule) a lot of the women claim they underperform because they lack male strength. So at least according to them, my ordinary job does.

It's not the biology you're looking for. You're looking at muscle when it's largely irrelevant. I don't want to presume what "female level strength" is, so instead I'll my own physical strength, and boy oh boy you're in a bad shape. If that was your baseline then your society is has no other choice but to use their big fat human brain. No amount of raw ...

No, in our modern or anyone's more-than-modern society, personal strength is not a limiting factor for any job assuming personal wealth or the equivalent available for use in acquiring mechanical means to assist or achieve a task. Nor need pregnancy overly limit, directly, such things either. Can a pregnant woman steer an oil tanker better than a hugely ...

No it's nothing that can't be accomplished with more time added on or more people to join in for whatever if we're looking at pre tools with post tools you can have less people to most tasks. Women disguised as men during the civil war performed all the same duties, functions, and miles as their male counterparts. Khutulun Mongolian Wrester & ...

To answer your question directly the only thing I can think of that can be affected by the average man being slightly more physically strong than women is war. To modern war it matters less than when we still killed each other with blades and pointy sticks. Back when battles were hundreds or thousands of men lining up and killing each other (slowly) with ...

I can’t think of any single task in the past or present which requires high strength but can’t be broken down into smaller parts or tasks. Sure, the average man might be able to lift a heavier log of wood than the average woman, but at some point you’ll always need two pairs of hands. We’ve always excelled at breaking things into manageable parts. I also ...

As soon as you have things like levers, wedges and wheels -- not to mention draft animals -- muscle power becomes a 'nice to have' rather than essential. Yes, big, hefty construction workers (of either sex) may get the job done quicker than small, delicate ones (of either sex) if they have to move a lot of bags of cement etc; and (crucially) your wages bill ...

Ok, before I answer the main point, I'm going go into a little diversion which has really important implications: What's the gravity on your all-female world? Because the physical strength of the people on your planet (male and female) will be highly dependent on the gravity they live in. If your planet has a lower than Earth gravity (like say the 0.89g ...

No there isn't. While on average, men are stronger than women, some individual women are much stronger than the average male, and vice versa. For all i know the maximum strength a human can reach is slightly higher in men, but that is just for extreme cases. The biggest part of the difference in average strengths is (somewhat dated) role models, and ...

Historically, male strength has served us well in any type of construction job, or things like combat. However, as industry and tools develop, this becomes increasingly less significant and necessary. Especially the invention of industrial tools to make manual tasks easier, contributes to the difference being less significant. While historically a man with ...
