Let's Not Skirt the Issue of Dress Codes at Clubs

June 17, 1991

I certainly do hope Esther Williams takes legal action against the Los Angeles Country Club. It may appear to be a trite matter to some, but this is a very serious issue for women because it has always been one way to keep women down.

Pants are more comfortable and easier to move around in. Also I've noticed I don't catch colds anymore since wearing pants most of the time.

Pants are more practical. That is why men choose to wear them instead of skirts. So why can't women? I don't know why it is considered professional for men to wear pants, but unprofessional for women.

I really admire Williams for not putting up with poor treatment. She has guts and character and I hope she doesn't back down.
