Vive La Pants Libre!… French Women Now Legally Able To Wear Pants

It’s from La Parisian so pardon my brutal translation. It appears the law banning women from wearing pants was enacted during the French Fevolution.

“Par opposition aux aristocrates, les révolutionnaires avaient revendiqué le port du pantalon, comme les femmes, ce qui leur avait été interdit.”

I think this translates kinda sorta as the French Revolutionaries found the wearing of pants to have been inspired by the decadent aristocracy to which they were opposed and so banned em.
