Abstract he research which this writer conducted recently reveals that one major controversy among churches in Nigeria is on female use of trousers. While the majority of the mainline churches still teach that on account of Deuteronomy 22:5, women are not allowed to wear trousers, some of the Neo-Pentecostals claim that the text is being misapplied; hence many of their female members wear trousers even to church on Sundays. The present study therefore critically examines the Deuteronomic text vis-à-vis this controversy with a view to ascertaining what relevance it has for female use of trousers in contemporary Africa, particularly Nigeria
