The House Democratic Women's Working Group is inviting female members of both parties to wear white to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address next week as a symbol of solidarity.
"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, the chair of the working group, told CNN.
Frankel pointed out there have never been as many Democratic women serving in Congress as there are today.
In 2017, the same group coordinated Democratic women wearing white to Trump's joint address to Congress. At the time, the women said they were wearing white not only in memory of the women's suffrage movement but also to show Trump their support for a number of issues affecting women, including affordable health care, reproductive rights and equal pay.
Wearing white has become common among female politicians who want to make a statement. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore white to the new-member swearing-in ceremony earlier this month, and wrote in a tweet, "I wore all-white today to honor the women who paved the path before me, and for all the women yet to come."
The New York Democrat added, "From suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the mothers of the movement."
Hillary Clinton wore white when accepting the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.

White Power Racists.
So it’s white women only. As Bob Dole once said, “where’s the outrage?”
Trump should show up in a white tux, just to screw with their symbolism.
#End Women’s Sufferage.
When Melania wore white it was interpreted as stark racism and bigotry, IIRC.
white gives camera crews difficulty.
But if the Democrat Klan wants to show their “strength” so be it.
Republican women could wear Red, White and Blue.
Kankles wore white when she won the 2016 Rat nomination.......and then got seriously drunk and hid in her hotel suite when Trump kicked her cottage cheese @ss.
>>Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore white to the new-member swearing-in ceremony earlier this month, and wrote in a tweet, “I wore all-white today to honor the women who paved the path before me, and for all the women yet to come.”
And for all of the tens of millions of innocent girls these stupid mean women aborted?
Not the first time these clowns have done this.
What the heck is this? Last I checked, women have had the right to vote for several decades... Further - Trump has been more pro-woman in every aspect of his administration than his predecessors.
I guess the DemoCraps are desperate to try to make SOME kind of showing?
Excellent, theyll be wearing Rat Jim Crow KKK white!
They’re trying to paint a persona on Trump. It needs no connection with reality. Millions will believe it without question and curse you if you deny it.
They’ve already done that color.
[[The New York Democrat added, “From suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the mothers of the movement.]]
Shirley Chisholm would have kicked her ass.
I must have missed something. Who asked/demanded they go back on their rights?
