Latter-day Saint leaders are finally cutting the faith’s female missionaries some slack.
Make that slacks.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Thursday that it has loosened the dress code and is now allowing “sister” missionaries in all 407 of its missions around the world to ditch their dresses and wear pants — at “their own discretion” — when they proselytize.
The change, motivated mostly by safety concerns and approved by the Utah-based faith’s governing First Presidency, was met by a chorus of amens from Latter-day Saint women across the globe.
“I say HALLELUJAH and ABOUT TIME,” Kayla Bach, who returned last year from a mission in Santiago, Chile, told The Salt Lake Tribune on Facebook. “Pants are the WAY TO GO for female missionaries.”
