Should women breathe from the diaphragm?

I was learning how to sing, and most places told me to breath from the diaphragm. I once heard before that women should not do that, but children and men can. Is that true?

Answer #1

I majored in music in college and I always heard that vocalists should breath from the diaphram with no distinction made for gender.
