Parity Pockets

Parity Pockets is a DIY kit and educational event dedicated to correcting the non-functioning pockets designed into women's clothing.

Industrial design, its culture and its objects, plays a significant role in social constructions of race, class, gender and age. Parity Pockets provide an immediate solution to one example of gender bias in design: pockets in womenswear. These no-sew pocket extenders correct the non-functional pockets found in many women's clothes. The Parity Pockets workshop presents the history of bias in industrial design, superficial and lethal examples of design failures in considering women accurately, and finally promising examples of change in other fields tackling gender bias.
