The absence of women in history is man made.
The best part is that she was a minor leaguer.
Something similar happened in competitive shooting. It used to be that everyone who entered a competition was scored against everybody else. But then women kept out-performing male shooters and it was decided that they absolutely HAD to divide the sport into male and female competitions because obviously it wouldn’t be fair for a woman to be compared to strong, manly men.
It always amuses me when people claim that shooting is a masculine sport that men are better at because they’re biologically built “stronger” when target shooting really isn’t about what most people think of as traditional “strength”. It’s really about patience, focus, being able to tell if you’re ready to take the shot or if you need to stop, breath and aim again, and bone support, if you’re trying to keep the gun stable with just your muscles you’re not doing it right!
