Can some women compete with most men in Powerlifting? Not saying Top 10 women could compete with Top 10 men, but there are women with great genetics and guys with weak genetics. Powerlifting is a sport that requires great genes and then technique unlike Boxing, UFC, etc. I personally think we could experiment that. Strongwomen like Becca Swanson and April Mathis could easily compete with men in the same weight class though they won't be top 5.
