Women Started Wearing Pants

Women Started Wearing PantsNowadays no one is taken by surprise when seeing a girl or a respectable lady wearing a comfortable pair of jeans, also called pitusas in Cuba. Women wear them to go on a walk or to go to work. A commonplace today, but it was quite a sensation when they were first introduced in Europe.

More than 400 hundred years ago, in the 16thcentury, the shrewd Catherine de' Medici was the Queen of France. She use to go hunting, but at the time the hoop skirts were too much of a nuisance to ride on a horse.

One day, the Queen called the royal tailor and asked him to make her a pair of trousers. Word spread quickly at the Court. Some said, “She wouldn’t dare”; others, “Would the King approve?”

But, one fine morning, the smart Catherine showed up wearing pants similar to those men used for riding; and, since she was the Queen, what had been criticized, at first, quickly became a fashion. It did no take long before the Ladies begun to wear beautiful and comfortable trousers… till this day. (Juan Blas Rodríguez)
