Helen Hulick

In 1938, L.A. Kindergarten teacher Helen Hulick went to jail for wearing pants in a courtroom. On Nov. 9, 1938, Hulick, 28, wore slacks during a court appearance to testify against two men — and her testimony was rescheduled and Hullick was ordered by Judge Arthur S. Guerin to return to the court in a dress. Hulick was quoted in the, Los Angeles Times saying, “You tell the judge I will stand on my rights. If he orders me to change into a dress I won’t do it. I like slacks. They’re comfortable.”
