Letter: Dangerous women

ON learning that the British Boxing Board considers women unfit to fight because they become "emotional and vulnerable during periods" ("PMT makes women `unfit to box' ", 13 February), I found myself worrying about the clearly unsuitable jobs that women have been allowed to get away with for so long, such as supervising and educating young children, ministering to critically ill patients, and operating potentially dangerous electrical equipment such as cookers, irons and sewing machines.
