For centuries, traditional morris men have been able to shake their hankies and wield their sticks and bells unencumbered by female involvement.

Now Labour's Equality Act has forced the country's men-only morris dancing clubs to open their doors to female members.

To head off the threat of a legal challenge, the Morris Ring, the country's oldest morris dancing organisation, has changed its constitution to allow women to join.

Equality, however, only stretches so far: women will be allowed as musicians and in other "organisational" roles but will still not be permitted to dance with the men.
