Group in red shorts protest against Wimbledon dress code over period concerns

A group of campaigners staged a protest at Wimbledon over the dress code due to concerns over periods for female players. Recreational tennis player Gabriella Holmes, 26, and footballer Holly Gordon, 28, started the campaign, Address The Dress Code, to highlight the anxiety that females face competing in traditional whites. The pair arrived at Wimbledon’s gate five with two other women, wearing white skirts with red undershorts, ahead of the ladies’ singles final on Saturday afternoon.
