#12 Elizabeth Smith Miller, First Women To Wear Trousers
Elizabeth, born in 1822 was the first woman to wear trousers. The first trousers were in fact more like bloomers, which were elastic at the waist and again at the knee or ankle area. Miller was a firm women's right activist claiming that skirts kept women oppressed and actually stopped them perusing careers and even managing their own transport effectively.
