Amelia Bloomer WORE bloomers, but she simply lent her name to the fashion. Born
Amelia Jenks in 1818, she married Dexter Bloomer and started her own newspaper for
women, "THE LILY". She became active in the campaign for women's rights and was
vocal about bloomers, which were an early form of pants that were worn underneath
skirts. It was Bloomer's association with the pants that earned them their nickname.
Until that time, they were usually referred to as "Turkish trousers".

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
