In agrarian societies, the males worked the fields and tended livestock during the day, and the women were tasked with caring for the home and children. So naturally, teaching children came to be seen as a woman's duty.

Yes, the cat is considered a woman; if not a kitten. When a kitten, it would be considered a girl.

If 'Old Woman Swamp' is the name of a specific swamp (real or fictional), it is a proper noun. A proper noun is always capitalized. A proper noun is the name of a specific person, place, or thing.

The accepted term, occupation, is the job or career you are following. A Postman (or woman) would state that their occupation was working for the Post Office. My favourite occupation, now I have been retired for four years, is to do a bit of gardening and to look after my Grandchildren when required!

At 5'7'', a woman should be about 125-145 lbs. Differences can be caused by age, body type, muscle mass, medical conditions, and medications. A weight a few pounds off of this scale, however, is most likely still able to be considered a "proper" weight.
