You see, women wore "suffragette white" to the poles on voting day to encourage the public to consider the future of women's rights when choosing their candidate.

A relatively new-ish and unknown artist, but one who has been striking me lately is the UK based Eris; she's gone by many names and changed her style radically through the years… and she has also been utilizing this fashion morse-code to share her beliefs without causing conflict; the artist who normally dresses quite conservatively has been going out in nearly nothing and wearing no make-up to make a statement on the beauty of a person's natural state;
"we're out of time to be anything but fearless—I used to be afraid to go barefaced, but now, in the society we live in… it has to be one of the bravest things a person can do. A guy who I thought liked me had this look like he was displeased when he saw me without [makeup]. And that's… the best thing in a way." She stated in a Grunge Royalty interview.
"I wanted to cry, but not because I was upset."
"Just that it didn't hurt me, you know. I thought I was another prisoner of caring how men thought I looked, but I learned that I'm not. I thought it would hurt, but it didn't. That's power." She stated.
Was it Madonna who once said "Power is knowing you are not loved and not letting it destroy you"?
