Men and women of the same height and weight can drink the same.

Fact

Women are affected more rapidly because they tend to have a slightly higher proportion of fat to lean muscle tissue, thus concentrating alcohol a little more easily in their lower percentage of body water. They also have less of an enzyme (dehydrogenase) that metabolizes or breaks down alcohol and hormonal changes during their menstrual cycle might also affect alcohol absorption to some degree.
