Things you can do in a dress or a skirt

Save Paris like St. Genvieve

Kick Moorish butt and save your country like Queen Isabella

Become a doctor of the Church like my friend, St. Therese

Help a pope like St. Catherine of Siena

Infuriate klansmen and garden variety racists like St. Katherine Drexel

Conquer the known world and look cute while doing it, like the Romans.

Indulge your inner wiseacre like me and mock the great pants debate . HT to In Haught Pursuit for giving me the idea for this post.

Doesn’t the Bible say “There is a time for every dress and an outfit for every occasion under the sun?”

I prefer skirts and dresses but have never taken down a nazi or heretic in

"Things you can do in a dress or skirt" is a good reminder that wearing a skirt or dress is not such an impediment to life that we might think it is.

I'd like to wear skirts and dresses more often, rather than pants, but always talk myself into reasons why I need to wear pants (except to Mass).

I have a friend who is an atheist, who mostly wears dresses and skirts, as she believes that they look better on her since she's a bit overweight. While wearing a skirt or dress, she rides her bike to work on a busy street, five miles each way. She also works in her garden, and climbs ladders and digs ditches - in a skirt or dress. If she can do it, then maybe I can too!

Invent the game of golf like the Scots! "I whack a ball an' it goes in a gopher hole"

I have pulled my Things You Can do in a Skirt post and linked to yours instead. Thanks!

Love the St. Gianna pic/post too.

Found my way here by way of Wendy. This is a great post and I will agree with your post re: St. Gianna. One pair of old jeans (in my case overalls) is fine for the rough jobs, but I can do the rest in a skirt. It is a funny thing; no one is usually rude to me about it but unfortunately they assume my husband is some kind of oppressor of women. :( It was my idea to go off pants in the first place, but I doubt most people are really all that interested in the whole story, anyway.
