If you hit the polls on Tuesday you may have noticed No White after Labor Day is a thing of the past.

But don't think it's a new fashion movement paying respect to Hillary’s all-white pantsuit.

Instead, it was a tribute to suffragettes in the early 1900's who wore all-white attire to fight for women's right to vote in the United States.

And like a lot of movements these days, It started with a hashtag,  #WearWhiteToVote,  and ended with women everywhere doing just that: rocking white to the polls.

While the power of the pantsuit might not have worked out for Hillary, there are a few women who made history election night.

Kamala Harris, California's Attorney General, became the second black women to be elected to the U.S. Senate. Representative Tammy Duckworth became the first Thai American in the chamber and Catherine Cortez Masto was elected the first Latina Senator.

In the end, seems like the women did get a piece of the pie!
