l found this article about it.
just putting a different spin on things. people always talk about how men are judged for being short, but short women experience prejudice too.
Most Helpful Girl
I would say being a short woman (5ft nothing) that people in general (of both genders) tend to make snap judgements about my personality based on my size. Mostly, I tend to get judged as sweet, innocent and not particularly assertive. Basically, they tend to think I'm a nice person but a bit of a push over and not as capable of running things or standing up for myself as women who are taller or larger framed. It doesn't stop people from getting to know me and realizing that I'm quite able to take charge of things and standing my ground when need be, so mostly it doesn't bug me.
Of course, when it comes to men I'm painted with the "cute" label for all eternity, but that's fine, I can work with that...
Tall women have their own trials- or so I'm told, so I guess it all works out in the wash...2
