I know I wear a lot of skirts and dresses, but I never gave it much thought since I used to wear a lot of pants...then one of my friends asked me if it was a religious stance to only wear skirts. I decided it was time to don some pants--I don't want to be put in a box! There are many Conservative Christian circles that believe women should only wear skirts. Ironically, as a feminist I don't believe that, but I do believe in wearing skirts as a sign of empowerment--as in I take strength from feminine attributes rather than going to traditional masculine pieces to feel powerful/authoratative.
