A while back I wrote a post about the average height of men in the world.  But women didn’t take it lightly. So, this time, I am writing a post on the average height of women by country.

Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Montenegro have some of the tallest women in the world. With an average height of 171 cm (5 ft 7.32 in),  172 cm (5 ft 7.72 in), 172 cm (5 ft 7.72 in), 172 cm (5 ft 7.72 in), respectively.

Zimbabwe, Tonga, and Bolivia have some of the shortest women in the world. With an average height of 157 cm (5 ft 1.81 in), 151 cm (4 ft 11.45 in) and 149 cm (4 ft 10.66 in) respectively.

Below is a detailed table showing the average height of women by country.
