Height, just like weight is equated to strengthin the human subconsious. When someone is towering over you or appears bigger in size, your mind automatically registers that they are stronger.

For a woman to stare at a tall man, she has to “look up”. This is translated in the subconscious mind as to “look up to”. This provides a sense of security and dependance.
