All Parisian Policewomen Are Criminals

Strictly speaking, since no French woman is allowed to wear trousers, which are part of the official Parisian policewoman's uniform. Though the law, on the books since 1799, has been amended several times over the years, and is basically negated by a 1946 gender-equality law which runs counter to it, it has never been removed from the books. It even survived a 2003 challenge - by a Right-Wing MP!

Authorities are now looking at removing the antiquated law.
