] It is okay and not noticed much these days/also women wear pants, but propriety require women to cross legs in the ankle area.
] Please observe the women in formal(mostly royal) family photographs, you will notice the ankles crossed. The queen and Princess Di in FORMAL photos.
When I go to a job interview, this is one of the things I am careful to do (and to practice beforehand). It looks much more professional to sit with ankles crossed than with legs crossed. In today's world, things like this are pretty irrelevant, but it does look nicer much of the time.
