Mormon Women Dare To Wear Pants

There is no rule within the Mormon church that says women cannot wear pants when they go to church. But, in some places, women who show up to service in anything but a skirt or dress are sometimes looked down upon. A group of Mormon women in Utah challenged this idea by starting a Facebook page called "Wear Pants to Church Day." It's gotten a lot of response, some praising this idea as liberating, others condemning the thought. How will the Mormon Church respond?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
