Democratic women wear white to President Trump's address

On Tuesday night, President Trump addressed Congress for the first time since taking office. But one of the biggest moments of the night was when democratic women in Congress showed up to the Presidential address in one coordinated color.

66 democratic women in Congress belong to the House Democratic Women's Working Group, which seeks to promote women's rights. A majority of these women dressed in head to toe white, a nod to the women's suffrage movement. In the early 1900s, members of the suffrage movement dressed in "suffrage white" to symbolize purity.

Right off the plane from Hawaii to go vote. #electionday
Go VOTE!!
I normally try and keep things light on here, but today is a really important day. This election has sadly brought out the worst in people, and too many hateful comments. So please remember everyone is allowed an opinion, but I will be so disappointed if it's not done with respect. First of all, and most importantly get out there and vote. This election is not just about choosing a president (more on that in a second) these decisions affect our local communities. You have a voice and this is how it's heard. So please before you vote- read up on propositions and candidates. And now for the big one. Yes #I'mWithHer. I realize she may not be everyone's ideal candidate but without question she is the most qualified person to run our country. I have a young daughter, and I want her to know that she can do and be anything. In fact that was the entire point of creating this nation. No matter race or gender or sexual orientation, you should be able to accomplish anything, regardless of what you look like. I want my daughter to watch a woman get sworn in as president, so as she grows up that will be her normal. I've worked my entire life with that glass ceiling over my head and now it's time to shatter that. There I have said my piece. Again I implore you, while I respect that everyone is allowed an opinion please no hate. Give respect and you will get respect.
Boys are stoked to #vote!

The hashtag #WomenWearWhite emerged on Twitter as a statement against President Trump.

Florida Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel said, "We wear white to unite against any attempts by the Trump administration to roll back the incredible progress women have made in the last century, and we will continue to support the advancement of all women." Rep. Frankel is the chair of the Working Group.

The group showed their support for an array of causes, including affordable health care, women's rights and Planned Parenthood.

The attire is a way for all of the supporters to come together. Likewise, Hillary Clinton made a similar statement with her stylistic choices.
