A large group of yoga pants-wearing women and girls turned out Sunday in Barrington, Rhode Island, for a parade in support of the pants, after a male resident wrote a letter to the town newspaper complaining that older out-of-shape women shouldn’t be wearing the stretchy, form-fitting attire.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young speaks with Rhode Island resident Selena Maranjian, who attended the parade.
