Women's Pockets are Inferior by Jan Diehm, Amber Thomas (The Pudding)

Few things are more frustrating than collecting your belongings only to realize that your pants pockets can’t fit them. For wearers of women’s clothes, the struggle is real. Like many things on the internet, we could find complaints and anecdotes galore but little data to show just how inferior women’s pockets are. So, we went there. We measured men’s and women’s pockets in 20 of the US’ most popular jean brands. On average, women’s front pockets are 48% shorter and 6.5% narrower than men’s.
