After male employees on Sweden’s Roslagsbanna commuter line were told they were prohibited from wearing shorts, they came up with a workaround solution: Skirts. Driver Martin Akersten and around a dozen other conductors are protesting the company’s anti-shorts policy by donning skirts––and so far, nobody’s complaining. Even the company that oversees the train lines says that it’ll let the drivers wear skirts, as long as they look “nice and proper.” Plus, say officials, they can’t sensor male skirt-wearers: it would be considered discrimination against men who want to wear women’s clothes.

It doesn’t matter if you’re making flowers, squares or portraits of your favorite pet — it’s the process that makes something jacquard or not.

With that in mind, we’ve picked ten of the best jacquard skirts around. Dress ‘em up with a silk shirt or down with a chambray, take your pick!
Fed up with the idea that women are somehow inviting rape by wearing “immodest” clothing, a group of men in Bangalore, India, have taken to wearing skirts in protest. Their protest comes right after the recent gang rape and brutal beating death of Jyoti Singh Pandey, and the men wanted to show solidarity. The protesters are also wearing signs that say “teach your sons not to rape” and “men, don’t skirt the issue — speak up, support women.”
“The point of this protest isn’t to rally or shout slogans, but rather show how wearing a skirt is just normal and that a piece of clothing cannot invite rape,” said Samarpita Samaddar, one of the protest’s organizers. After weeks of nothing but horrible news coming from India, it’s inspiring to hear these men stand up for women. [CNN]
