Henley Regatta lets women wear trousers for first time in 182-year history

Women allowed to wear trousers to Henley Regatta for first time ever

The Metro says: Women have finally been allowed to wear trousers at the Henley Royal Regatta.

The move represents a first in the rowing event’s 182-year history and comes after a petition branded the dress code ‘oppressive’ and pointless.

The Regatta, which has been held annually in the Oxfordshire town since 1839, has updated its dress code for the Stewards’ Enclosure to state that women can wear ‘jackets or blazers with trousers, or trouser suits’.

It also allows dresses, skirts, jumpsuits or culottes ‘with a hemline below the knee’.
