The impending election has a lot of people on the edge of their seats. Supporting and rooting for your candidate in a close race can be tough. But Hillary Clinton fans have found an antidote to the stress: A private, 1.7 million-member community celebrating the candidate’s famous wardrobe and more.
The Pantsuit Nation Facebook page is filled with personal photos and anecdotes about voters who are excited to hit the polls tomorrow, clad in Clinton-inspired apparel. Supporters range from lifelong Democrats to Republicans who plan to cross party lines this week. The posts are so frequent that it’s actually difficult to scroll through the page—comments and new photos pop up every second from fans wishing to join the discussion and suit up for Election Day.
According to CNN, the group was started by Maine resident Libby Chamberlain, who wanted to celebrate Clinton’s staple pantsuits and the idea of a first female president.”We talked about how beautifully and stoically Hillary embodies women’s fight for equality, and how the pantsuit is an emblem of that struggle,” Chamberlain told CNN of a conversation she had with a friend before starting the group. “It’s a symbol that might be lost on younger women, and so I wanted to do something to re-appropriate that symbol and everything that it means to me as a feminist and Clinton supporter.”
Pantsuit Nation is closed to the public, but fans can be added via email or Facebook. The group also has a public page.
