Ladies, rejoice! You can no longer be arrested for wearing pants in Paris.
That's right - a 200-year-old law banning women from wearing trousers in the French capital has finally been quashed.
The antiquated rule, though unenforced in recent years, meant women could have been put behind bars for dressing "as men", the Telegraph reports.
Amendments made in 1909 stipulated a lady could wear trousers "if the woman is holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse".
France's women's rights minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem released a statement on January 31 that said the law was “incompatible with the principles of equality between women and men, which are listed in the Constitution”.
"From that incompatibility follows the implicit abrogation of the ordinance."
Several earlier attempts to revoke the law were ignored because officials deemed it of low priority and part of French "legal archaeology".
