SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Bay Area Democratic women in Congress posed front and center for a photo-op wearing white on Tuesday, just before President Trump’s State of the Union Address. The lawmakers planned the show of color in honor of suffragettes who, a century ago, won the right for women to vote.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) tweeted the photo and wrote, “Proud to join my fellow @HouseDemWomen today as we #WearWhite to show support for the ongoing fight to achieve equality for women across the country.”READ MORE: Family Killed On Hike In Sierra National Forest Died From Extreme Heat
