In case there was still anyone other there who genuinely believes that practical plate armor is too restrictive to allow a regular person to move around and hence had to be restricted to only the mightiest of men: 

The obstacle run of glory has been completed.

Unsurprisingly it turns out armor of all eras is designed to allow for a wide variety of movement by a wide variety of people provided they have the training and conditioning.  Similar to that of modern soldiers and fire fighters.

The notion that women need lighter armor due to encumbrance only makes sense if one actually believes the ridiculous dimorphism sadly common in so many productions.
