Girls: how heavy do you lift (working set) in the squat, deadlift and bench?

I'm asking out of curiousity. A lot of girls are lifting rather heavy in my gym, so I was just wondering whether it was representative of the general student population. I see also on social media quite a lot of girls showing off as well, particularly on the hip thrust. It could be nice if you could also include your height, weight, and how long you have been working out. Thanks :-)
My girlfriend is ~70kg, she's 5'10''

Her current approx maxes are 110kg
Bench 80kg
Deadlift 110-120kg

Thank you, is your impression that this approx average for girls?

no my girlfriend is an elite powerlifter for her body weight for bench and squats.

That said there's no reason why any woman can't achieve these sort of numbers (maybe not bench) with time and effort

A friend of mine is not far off a 3x bw deadlift. She's got the current junior record in her weight class.

Doesn't stop random from trying to give her unsolicited advice though.
