Why Did Women Start Wearing Trousers? Will This Trend Continue In The Next 100 Years?
Women started wearing trousers (now just called pants,) because dresses were too cumbersome and not practical for many work environments. Once this was accepted as the 'norm', women's fashions started including pants for professional and everyday wear...and yes, unless something radical happens and we are stripped of our rights to choose, women will continue wearing them.
Many said as last answer they were too cumbersome in dresses for factory work. Though women were wearing pants before WWII that is said to be the actual time it became "acceptable" for them to be in pants.

I think women started wearing trousers to mark the end of spontaneous sexual intercourse. Will it continue? Well, once you've got those pants on, it's hard to get them off . .
very few women started to wear pants until Katherine Hepburn (a great actress in the 1930's and 40's) broke the boudaries and wore pants everywhere. She pulled it off with grace and ease, and ever since then, it has pretty much become acceptable for women to wear them. Katherine- I thank you!
I asked my Mom this the other day as I was watching an old movie, the original "Mildred Pierce" perhaps ... and the woman was up a ladder doing cleaning work in a *pencil skirt*. A pencil skirt! Up a ladder! Mom (who is in her 60s) said she could remember it being that way as she grew up, waching my grandma. Two generations ago seemed too "recent" for me to even believe it, but Mom swears she never once saw her mother in anything other than a skirt or dress her entire childhood or teens! And when she did start wearing them, they were part of a panstsuit. Well, I for one am a comfort-loving gal who is happy to be in this generation of pants-wearers.
Women started wearing trousers when common sense set in someone's head and said, "Wouldn't you be more comfortable plowing in pants than having a dress drag the ground and stumble over it? The mule is laughing at you!" I am glad that the first female trousers wearer entertained this question. I am equally glad that someone else had the good sense to design trousers for the female forms so that they could stop wearing the ones made for men. We have the feminine pants, and they have the masculine pants. Good deal! Pants designed for women are not peretaining to men's. No real man would dare strut around in women's pants. It is one thing to be feminine, but it is another to be sensible!
Hiking, mountain climbing, camping out, fishing, boating--in dresses? The trend will continue.
During a time when women wore more dresses/skirts, it was not uncommon to see underwear, and more, when underwear was not worn. Women walking upstairs often displayed to guys below. Remember the dropped mirrors on the dance floors? Naughty boys!
