House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and dozens of women wore white to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
The reason? To show solidarity for women’s suffrage and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
The spot of white outfits showed just how many women were elected to Congress in November’s midterm election.
"Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights," Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida told CNN ahead of Tuesday's address.
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez also shared her opinion and support of gender equality and women’s rights.
“We have a very large number of women, a record of number certainly in the freshman class, that have been elected to Congress this year,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “It shows that, over 100 years, this battle and this fight for women’s equality has been long and it’s been difficult, but it has reaped many rewards in our democracy.”
