Paris finally says 'oui' to women in jeans


A 200-year-old law forbidding women to wear trousers in Paris has finally been revoked. The unenforced rule survived several previous attempts to repeal it, partly because officials didn't think it was a priority. The original law was introduced in 1800 to prevent women taking certain jobs. Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor-Wood reports from Paris.
