Re: A piece of steampunk history

historical bloomer suit

A bloomer suit, an outfit for use with bicycles is created in the 1880s as special clothing for women to wear while riding a bicycle. Originally bloomers were loose, baggy, “Turkish trousers”, recommended for women by Mrs. Amelia Jenks Bloomer who oriented the women’s emancipation movement, in the early 1850s. “Bloomers” were generally rejected and treated with ridicule. Though pants-style clothing had not yet won approval, when women began participating in sports at the end of the 19th century, bloomers used when riding bicycles were met with much approval and spread far and wide.

And on a heavier note: a good reason to never take your right to vote for granted
