520 |a Why do men's clothes have so many pockets and women's so few? Why are the pockets on women's clothes too small to be practical-- if they open at all? Carlson examines issues of gender politics, security, sexuality, power and privilege-- all tucked inside our pockets. This takes a look at the social- and design-history of the sewn-in pocket, from the mid-1500s up to today. Will we still want pockets in the future when our clothes contain "smart" textiles that incorporate our IDs and credit cards? -- adapted from jacket
