yay pockets.

The Victoria and Albert Museum did a great write up about pockets, and as I was reading it, I wondered, but why do the women have a separate pocket and the men don't? My friend's conjecture is that because women were considered property, and buttons were not only a symbol of wealth but also used as money, why would you give money to your property. Women weren't worth it. And with a wage discrepancy of $.75 a woman earns to every $1 a man earns, women still aren't considered worth it.
