sexual vulnerability/availability seems to be the psychological function of skirts in the west, IMHO. they have little practical purpose for the wearer, other than focussing attention on, or accentuating curves that promote the wearers sexual as(s)pect.
in muslim countries, where traditional dress is standard, the difference between the sexes clothing is less striking. clothing is designed more along the lines of practicality (see right). this image also reminds me of various representations of the xtian figurehead, jesus.
