Finance expert Ryan Monsurate explained to Bored Panda that the reason why women’s clothes have small or no pockets is simply because that’s the choice that’s offered by most brands at the moment. “I think if larger pockets were offered, they would sell well. I don't believe this is market equilibrium,” he said. In other words, it’s a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem because for trends to change, trends need to change.
Monsurate added that purses aren’t as effective an alternative to pockets. Especially when it comes to one of the most ubiquitous tools we use all day long, our phones. “Phones in purses aren't as accessible as phones in pockets,” he said.

Unfortunately, not all differences are pleasant and fun. Bored Panda also reached out to writer and founder of Voice of Salam, Elizabeth Arif-Fear. One of the issues she’s interested in is the differences between men and women. Especially regarding the wage gap, gender inequality, and how to solve these problems.
“The facts speak for themselves. Less than 4% of CEOs in the world's 500 largest corporations are women, for every dollar men earn, women earn 70-90 cents and women spend 200-1000% more time than men caring for others (children, elderly family members, ill relatives). This has to change,” Arif-Fear told Bored Panda.

According to Arif-Fear, the best way forward is for men and women to support each other. She advises women to openly share their stories of mistreatment in the workplace and to highlight the differences in how they and their male coworkers are treated.
She also advises men to avoid “mansplaining” and instead be allies to women. “Ensure there's a seat at your table, ensure you value the contribution of women. Let's all look out for each other and ensure that gender inequality becomes a thing of the past.” So while some differences in the world are intriguing to look at, others need to be tackled head-on.
