Have you ever wondered why women lack functional pockets in pants? Is it because they have a bag to carry? The real reason is actually all business. And it just wasn't fashionable to keep their pockets around for any longer.

Women began to wear trousers like men in early-mid 1900s.

By the time the feminist movement swept through, pockets were yesterday's news.

This question was asked on Reddit and people came up with a variety of their own conclusions.

Pants designed for women were intended to follow their shape, their curves, and of course, as some theorize, to help designers sell their bags.

And business: removing pockets from pants can lead to more profit from saving on supplies, materials, and time.
