An outdated Parisian law banning women from using trousers has police women of Paris breaking the law.
A police chief introduced the law in 1800 and it was later amended to allow Parissiennes to wear pants when riding a bycicle or a horse. But this is no history lesson, the latest failed attempt to get rid of the ridiculous rule was in 2003.
Pionneering fashion designer Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Channel got famous for defying the law. The iconic french woman left her mark in history for having introduced menswear to women's closets around the world -- and still Paris officials can't get their act together. She died in 1971.
