Both skirts and dresses have been fashionable for women through history. Also in periods were men wore pants. I'm wondering if it has something to do with that woman couldn't stand peeing and it was easier if they wore skirts/dresses without any underwear instead of pants where underwear were required for better hygiene and because it was easier to cope with the monthly cycle. I'm also curious if it was because of the practical reasons it was like that and not because of sexism. Men also often ride horses, worked more outside etc.

I think so. In my country back in time during the WW2 the women who worked were wearing men clothes (pants, etc...) for not disturbing the guys who worked and practicality.
During this time only the women who worked were authorized to wear pants.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
