Carol Perkins: How pant suits have changed lives of women

Carol recalls important dates - 1993 for one - when institutions even allowed women to wear pantsuits, the women who dared be the first - like fashion icon Ruth Bartley as a teacher in Metcalfe County, who dared to be the first to wear pant suits in the classroom. 'Many in our society frown on women wearing pants (especially in church) and that is their right, but I'm just thankful that I never have to wear a dress again . . . ' she says.
The next earlier column: Carol Perkins: Swearing off the Happiest Place on Earth

By Carol Perkins

Pantsuits became popular in this part of the country around 1970. As a matter of fact, I found a full-page feature story (70s) in our local paper about women wearing pantsuits! Things that we once thought were so shocking or newsworthy are nothing more than a passing thought today-in most situations. However, at the time a woman wearing a pantsuit in the work place was daring. It was not until 1993 that ladies could wear pantsuits (or slacks of any kind) on the Senate floor.
