Women in the United States are wearing pantsuits on November 8 while going to vote to show support to Hillary Clinton. What began as an initiative by a small group of women in Maine has become a movement now.
The Pantsuit Nation was a small group of Clinton supporters, which was founded by Maine resident Libby Chamberlain. They came "together to encourage one another and advocate for their candidate." Clinton's fashion choice has become a symbol of a movement for women this election.
"Originally started as a campaign to encourage wearing pantsuits on Nov. 8, our small private Facebook group has quickly become a movement. We encourage our members to post personal reflections, minihistories, stories, encounters, memories, and musings about what this election and Hillary Clinton means to them. We share stories about our grandparents, our children, and our families. We support each other during this highly contentious election season and have created a refuge from the vitriol that is sweeping our nation," the group said in a statement.
The Facebook group, which had begun with only a few hundred members, has now become the largest private Facebook group, with an addition of more than 2.3 million members in just 18 days.
The group is not only advocating their support for Clinton but also urging US residents to vote on this crucial day.

Women are also using social media to share pictures of themselves in pantsuits in support of Clinton, who could be the first female president of the US.
