Watching the CBS morning show this Sunday we saw a report on “The 500-year history of the pocket” The video was very interesting as I had never really thought about the story of how pockets came into being in clothing and fashion. The piece showed lots of history as well as quite a bit of past and current controversy over the inequality of men’s and women’s fashions use of pockets throughout history. Check out the link above for the CBS report.
After the segment on TV, Sher and I started talking about it. Sher asked what I carried in my pockets. I replied that since our being stuck with the virus I haven’t used pockets! Actually I have not really used many pockets since my daughter gifted me with the sling bag pictured above with the things I usually have with me. Guess this leads to a hopeful additional purpose of this post. What do you carry in your pockets? Do you even have pockets? Agree with some of the gender inequalities brought up in the CBS report?
