November 8th is not only Election Day, it’s also Pantsuit Day.
On Facebook, a private group called Pantsuit Nation was created. The group consisted of Hillary Clinton supporters who came up with the idea to wear her signature outfit to the polls. This is similar to the idea of Trump supporters wearing red.
The group, which was created by Libby Chamberlain of Maine, provided Clinton supporters with a safe space, as they might be surrounded by others with opposing views. It was also made to fight against gender roles, as pantsuits are typically seen as " a man's prerogative".
In this group, women shared their stories about having different views from their relatives, how they fought for the Equal Rights Amendment, and how they just became citizens and voted for the first time.
In a little over two weeks, the plan spread much further than the original Facebook group. The hashtag #PantsuitNation has since been used all over social media.
