I know that growing up in NJ, I typically associated the Amish Country in Pennsylvania--Mennonites--as always wearing skirts. Look on wikipedia at "Ordnung," where you'll see that it describes pretty much unwritten rules for the Amish, and among the list is "color and style of clothing. "

Orthodox Judaism requires women to wear skirts or dresses. The reason: women are not supposed to wear men's garments and pants are considered to be a garment that is typicaly worn by men.

Judaism prohibits women from wearing men's clothes. This prohibition is commonly interpreted as prohibition of wearing pants, implying that skirts or dresses are the only appropriate clothing. Some rabbis, however, consider pants specifically designed for women as a female attire and do not prohibit wearing them.
