At what height is a woman considered tall and a man considered short?
Well, the question says it all. In my opinion men are considered short if they are under 6'0. I don't know why lol do you agree? Not to sure about the woman one, I'd say a woman is considered tall if she's 5'7 or 5'8 ish and above

What Guys Said 6
In my region people are taller than in the U. S. Average height for a woman is 171 cm (5 ft 7 1/2 in) and for the guy 185 cm (6 ft one in). So I'd say women 5 5 and under are considered short, the same goes for guys shorter than 5' 11. Woman are considered tall-ish if they are 5'9 and up but that's considered a great thing 'cause there is a strong cultural preference for tall women (probably because they're tall but still shorter than the guys).
Way I see it, "short" means shorter than the average and "tall" means taller than average. So, then... to determine that, you should look at the average heights for people. What are the averages? Well... according to wikipedia... link
The average woman in the US is 5' 4.5" tall, and the average man is 5' 8.5" tall.
Thus, I would break them down like this:
5' 6" and below: short.
5' 6"-6': average
6' and up: tall
5' 2" and below: short
5' 2"-5' 7": average
5' 7" and up: tall
You'll find between 60-70% of both men and women will fall into the "average" category.
