House Democrats appeared at the Capitol on Tuesday wearing white suits and dresses ahead of the State of the Union.
The color was selected as a nod to the suffragist movement, according to Rep. Lois Frankel, chair of the Democratic Women’s Working Group.
“This is really going to be sending a message … that a big part of our agenda is going to be promoting the economic security of women and their families,” Frankel said. For more on the color choice, click here for Lindsey McPherson’s reporting.
