Hillary Clinton's white jacket seemed like an inauguration-day protest.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the first female Speaker of the House, and other female Democrats in the House will wear all white during President Donald Trump's speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) also posted a picture of herself, saying she was wearing "suffragette white" in honor of generations of women who "marched and fought for our sacred rights".

"We wear white to unite against any attempts by the Trump Administration to roll back the incredible progress women have made in the last century, and we will continue to support the advancement of all women". We will not go back! She also wore white at other major moments during the presidential campaign, including when she became the first woman to accept a major party's presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia past year.

Look closely at the women attending President Trump's address on Tuesday night, and you'll notice something: A lot of them are wearing white. "We're not going to wave signs", she said.

Clinton never explicitly said that defying Trump was her motivation, or that she wore white as an homage to suffragettes. That working group includes all 66 Democratic women members and delegates of the US House of Representatives, many of whom are expected to participate in the action.
