Bible verses supporting women wearing pants?

Are there any? I am trying to convince my Catholic school to swap from skirt to pants in the winter uniform

Doubt you will find anything. The Bible was written by men over 1500 years ago.... That is back before pants existed.
Men wrote the Bible with lots of stuff in their to make and keep women subservient to men. Most religions down play the role of women and do not have them as equals to men. (That should be obvious that it is a book written by men and not by God)

I know but i was still hopeful
im pretty sure most of the religions except buddhism are sexist and were created with the sole purpose of keeping subjects in line and following their leader. However I did find an article about a school in the UK thats being taken to court by the Equal oppurtunities Commision for not allowing their students to wear trousers

Wow.. that is awesome. Maybe you should do the same thing. Wearing pants will keep you warmer in the winter months. Dresses and skirts are just not practical sometimes.

There aren't any. And if there were you'll never change their minds. Sorry hon, it sure gets cold I know. Used to hate that. Try walking 2 miles in snow that way (uphill both ways, fought off bears with my loose leaf notebook)
Leggings helped a bit.

Since in Biblical days pants hadnt really even been invented yet, even for men, there are no verses specifically supporting anyine wearing pants. Only the Roman military had a garment that resembled pants in those days. For the most part everyone - women and men - wore robes, skirts, kilts or tunics. No pants for a couple of centuries at least. Sorry. You cant change the schools mind. My niece and nephew go to an uber-traditional Christian (nonCatholic) school and girls have to wear dresses there too. Ubertraditionalists are sort of like Jews in that they cling to the old covenant rules rather that turning fully to the new covenant under Christ who freed us from the necessity of most of the old covenant laws. They do so mostly because it suits their desire to control others.

Do you also look to the bible when deciding how much to sell your daughter for, or how to treat your slaves? The bible has nothing nor should it have anything to do with modern times. If it was truly a universal timeless book on how to live correctly, it should not reference selling anyone, daughter or slave, it would just say those things are wrong. So if its wrong about that, it's probably wrong when it comes to modern dress as well.
