Former Democratic nominee and First Lady, and current glass ceiling smasher and badass-in-chief Hillary Clinton showed up to the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. wearing white. Not only is she the picture of elegance (and grace, considering her history with Trump), but her choice of color is particularly symbolic: suffragettes often wore white to marches in the early 1900s. This isn't the first time Clinton has chosen to wear white on a historic day: according to The Guardian, she wore a white pantsuit to the Democratic National Convention this summer, which of course pointed to her place as the first-ever female Democratic nominee. Today, HRC wore white again, a powerful reminder of how far women have come, and how determined we are not to give up the rights we have achieved.

.@HillaryClinton, I love you. I truly do. I will wear pantsuits and suffragette white every day for the next four years. Thank you.

Thank you, Hillary, for reminding us of women's strength and resilience.
