When President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union Address Tuesday night, he will be met with a large contingent of women members of Congress wearing white in tribute to the suffragettes and to honor the voters who sent them to retake Congress in November.

Florida Rep. Lois Frankel, chairwoman of the Democratic Women’s Working Group, took to Twitter to encourage women to join the movement:


"We'll honor all those who came before us & send a message of solidarity that we're not going back on our hard-earned rights!" tweeted Frankel.

The participating Congresswomen have been sharing pictures of themselves in their suffragette white all day on social media.

Even once they were inside the chamber:

And some said it wasn't enough.

Trump may be displaying the names of his donors during the speech, but we're looking forward to a display of women in white, and the message it sends, at tonight's State of the Union address.
