Pock­ets are a fem­i­nist is­sue!

The Mail on Sunday - - Comment -

I LOVE the new-style wed­ding dress with roomy pock­ets cut into beau­ti­ful bloom­ing skirts, right, not least be­cause re­cent re­search showed women’s jeans come with pock­ets that can’t fit a fe­male hand.

In my fam­ily, we’ve long known that girls lose out in the pock­ets stakes. My hus­band James’s suits have per­haps five pock­ets. My trousers – jeans and suit – have silly, slight slits.

The re­sult? He never loses his keys and I of­ten do. Pock­ets are a fem­i­nist is­sue.
