Today, Ivanka Trump made her way to the PS 59 in New York City to vote. Like so many women across America, she dressed for the occasion. She wore white.
Since the third debate (to which Hillary Clinton wore a bright-white pantsuit), supporters of our would-be first woman president have celebrated the official color of the U.S. women's suffrage movement. In the early 1900s, activists dressed in white to agitate for the vote. Today, thousands of women have embraced the #wearwhitetovote movement, showing up to the polls in white pantsuits and dresses and T-shirts to savor this moment and to remember how hard-won it's been.
And while the contributions of African American suffragettes have been wildly discounted and overlooked, remember that when Shirley Chisholm became the first African American woman elected to Congress in 1969, she, too, wore white.
Which is why it's somewhat peculiar that Ivanka Trump decided to bundle up in white to cast her ballot. She's presumably voting for a man who would not only like to build a wall, ban all Muslims from the United States, and effectively destroy our democracy, but whose supporters have literally demanded the repeal of the 19th Amendment.
Maybe Ivanka is just wearing a white coat. Or maybe this is just a subtle way to let us all know that she secretly pulled the lever for Hillary Clinton. Probably not though.
