Let me illustrate this with puppetry.— Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) October 6, 2019
Jim Henson was 6'3"
The Muppet sets were optimized to make him comfortable.
When they hired puppeteers, the people who had the easiest time were also over 6'.
Sets today are still built and optimized for a 6'3" man, even though Henson died in the 90s.— Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) October 6, 2019
No one made the decision to hire more men than women. It comes as a direct causal chain from that initial optimization.
