It has been a long while, but if my memory is working, standard combat load including weapon and ammunition is about 100LBS.
That is a considerable load for an average sized woman.

The Russians tried women in line units and abandoned the idea as unworkable.

So did the Israelis. Not even Hitler was tried this BS. Women were in support roles in Nazi Army.
