It seems that the issue of a woman wearing pants is a heated one and there are varying opinions as to why it is a problem. Assuming that Beged Ish is not a problem (pants that are specifically made for women) and assuming that they are tzanua (baggy etc), is there still a problem regarding Dat Yehudit?
Most mainstream orthodox people I know don't wear pants. Is there a large enough faction of religious, Halacha conscientious, Jewish women who wear pants? If yes, can one say that it is common enough in the religious Jewish world to wear pants and therefore Dat Yehudit no longer applies in this case?
I am interested in the customs of the Halacha conscious modern orthodox community. It seems to me that it is more common for woman to wear pants within those communities, in contrast to the more mainstream rightwing orthodox.
