To look at Democratic women during President Trump's first address to Congress was to see a large number of pantsuits in white-the color representing women's suffrage and the fight for women's rights (especially with Donald Trump in the White House).
Anyone watching Trump's joint address to congress this evening may have noticed a sea of white pantsuits being worn by the Democratic women present, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Katherine Clark (D-Mass.). In fact, Hillary Clinton wore a white pantsuit when she accepted her party's nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

He was referring to a group of female Democrats who wore white as an attempt to "troll" President Donald Trump during his speech last night. The statement also said that the members are wearing white to show support for Planned Parenthood, affordable health care, reproductive rights, equal pay, paid leave, affordable child care and "lives free from fear and violence".
And during the campaign, audio surfaced of Trump saying that, because he was a celebrity, he could "grab" women by their private parts without their consent.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Tuesday, "It's not even a protest". She called her outfit a "statement of values", and said numerous women will be dressed similarly.
