Women’s trousers illegal in Paris for 200 years

Women in Paris may soon be legally allowed to wear trousers after a female French senator called for a 200-year old ban technically still in place to be lifted.

The bizarre ban was first introduced in late 1799 by Paris’ police chief, and stipulated than any woman wishing to “dress like a man” must seek special permission from police and provide medical justification for showing their legs.
