Mitzvah #255 - Women cross-dressing

Women are forbidden to wear clothing or jewelry that is specifically for men.

A woman may not have a "man's haircut".

This Halacha is location-specific; the norm of the place you are in, defines what is "masculine".

Applies to women, always, everywhere.

Verse: "A woman should not wear man's clothing" (Devarim 22:5)
