Celebrating Women’s Achievements

If you attempt and are unsuccessful in fitting your smartphone or lipstick in the pockets of your bridal dress, be aware that you’re participating in a long-running battle.

Pockets. We tend to overlook them like most things in life, but did you know they are a rich source of information? Bags of women were linked to times of advancement in women’s rights and equality of gender.

In the past, women would sew small pouches to hold their items and cut holes in their clothing to allow easier access to the pockets. As design innovations enabled the construction of more conventional bags, like those we see today, they were mainly added to male clothing. Since women were less independent, had responsibilities outside of their homes, and typically did not have the opportunity to earn money themselves, fashion designers did not think that women needed pockets. However, women’s fashion could have been more practical, and clothes were made more snug.

All this changed after those World Wars. Women took on the positions that men were previously able to fill. This gave women complete autonomy and allowed women the opportunity to work for their cash, and their attire was eloquent evidence of this. They began to wear more practical clothing and eventually were equipped with trousers and big pockets.

The Pocket Revolution continues today. We’ve heard in the streets about brides who are in love with wedding dresses that have pockets. We’ve all seen images… “It has pockets!”
