Paris still has a ban on women wearing trousers.
Paris still has a ban on women wearing trousers. In this regard, the fashion capital of the world is no different from any Yemen
Law prohibiting prejudice
Only in 1892, the strict ban was somewhat relaxed by the amendment, allowing the weaker sex to wear trousers. True, only while riding. In 1909, a new indulgence appeared - women were allowed to wear trousers while riding a bicycle.
Only in 1969, in the wake of the global movement for gender equality, Paris lawmakers asked the police to lift the ban. But the police chief replied: "It would be extremely unwise to rewrite the laws only under the influence of fashion, which is one today and completely different tomorrow."
In 2003, Nicolas Sarkozy, a parliamentarian from the party, called on the French Minister of the Interior to lift the ban on trousers for women. The minister replied in the spirit that Parisian women have been wearing trousers for a long time, despite any prohibitions. And it works much more effectively than any government intervention.
However, without exception, French policewomen wear pants. This means that the servants of the law violate this law without exception.
