“Women may wear men’s trousers”: Attorney General of Kansas ruled

nsnbc : The Attorney General of the U.S. State of Kansas ruled that women may wear men’s trousers, especially when they are the head of the household. That was 110 years ago.

NYT_Kansas_USA_Women allowed to wear trousers_1910On April 29, 1907, the New York Times reported that Kansas Governor Stubbs received a letter from a widow at Oswego, asking for permission to wear men’s trousers while at work at home.

That’s right, she did not ask for permission to wear men’s trousers in public but at  home. In her letter, the woman wrote that she was supporting a large family which necessitated outside work. Moreover, she said that wearing skirts she was badly handicapped.

Governor Stubbs sent the letter to the Attorney General who ruled that there was no law prohibiting a woman from wearing men’s trousers, “especially if she were the head of the house”.

In 2017, some 110 years after the ruling that authoritatively concluded that there was nothing wrong with a woman being the one who is wearing the pants – as long as there isn’t any patriarch in the house, women have won freedoms that were almost unimaginable when the Kansas widow wrote her letter to Governor Stubbs.

One of the victories women have won is that they now have the full right to wear men’s or women’s wear and work in under-paid wage slavery as equals to their fellow male citizens, at least 8-hours per day to make ends meet.
