Either you are one, or you know one, but there's no avoiding it — short women are everywhere.
Defined for our purposes as women who are 5'2 and below (nice try, 5'3ers!), there is a specific set of life challenges and bonuses that come along when you are a vertically challenged woman.
Putting aside for the moment constantly having to come up with clever responses to "how's the weather down there?" and "I'm sorry, are you sitting or standing?", short women don't actually have it all bad. In fact, we're usually contending with a double-edged sword. For example, no one thinks you're dangerous — but no one gets intimidated by you either. And people always think you're cute ... but people always think you're cute.
Take a trip into the life of a short woman, and let us know — were there any gripes or bonuses we missed?
