If a woman is working in a hospital and the hospital has a dress code that includes trousers and there are no skirts available - Is it ok for the lady to wear trousers? Are there any sources that discuss this or a similar scenario.

    This question would be more compelling if it included some notion of why it may be a problem for a woman to wear trousers in the first place.

  • In the past men wore robes reminiscent of dresses/skirts, men on some countries even wore heels at one time. Whether clothing is considered ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ is partly time-bound. That said, these days we have women’s pants and men’s pants that often differ in style, form, color etc. which makes a clear distinction between the two. The same applies to other clothing or uniforms for example; distinguish by different combinations for men and women.
