Men and women is what you would say, they are siamese twins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siamese_twins_(linguistics)#With_.22and.22_as_the_conjunction
I wrote "powerful men and women" , and it was marked wrong. A little narrowminded, i think;)
Wouldn't this rather be 'Strong women and men are drinking milk'? For the translation given, I'd expect the aorist mōzussisi for a more general, aphoristic sense.
