‘Yoga Pants Parade’ set for Sunday

BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) — A controversy has stirred in Barrington over a popular style of clothing favored by women.

It all started with a ‘Letter to the Editor’ that chastises women of a certain age for wearing yoga pants.

Now, a group of local women are fighting back. The ‘Yoga Pants Parade’ will kick off Sunday at the Hampden Meadows Elementary School in Barrington.

The organizer says the event is meant to protest misogyny and the policing of women’s bodies.

More than 300 people on Facebook say they plan on marching.
