Question 270

Pater is it right for women to wear trouser to church?


Answer to Question 270


I think the problem of wearing trousers to church depends on where you are. Most churches in towns are now used to women wearing trousers and wouldn't raise a eyelid. It has now become accepted that trousers can be worn by both sexes. But if you are in a remote village where people are still living in the middle ages I think it would be best to wear a dress/skirt so as not to scandalize the older generations that still think that trousers is a mans attire. I would rather see a woman in trousers (not leggings) rather than a short mini skirt.
