Museum Crush: Women wearing the trousers – the archive of women striding across history

Museum Crush: Women wearing the trousers – the archive of women striding across history. “A new visual archive bringing together images of bloomers, knickerbockers, culottes and all manner of bifurcated or ‘divided’ garments is telling the story of trouser-wearing women with an online gallery of digital images spanning more than a century. Women in Trousers: A Visual Archive has been developed by Cardiff University’s Special Collections and Archives to provide a visual account of the complex and sometimes contradictory meanings represented by women ‘wearing the trousers’ from the 1850s to the 1960s.”
