The Important Reason Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton All Wore Purple
If you're wondering whether there's significance behind Vice President Kamala Harris, former First Lady Michelle Obama, and former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton all wearing purple during the presidential inauguration, there most certainly is. (Even Senator Elizabeth Warren decided to wear a purple scarf for the historic event!) So, why purple? It's because the colour represents bipartisanship and the country coming together. It's a combination of red (representing the Republican party) and blue (representing the Democratic party) to create purple. In case you weren't aware, swing states are also often called "purple" states as well.
Another reason is that purple is the colour of the suffragist movement. Kamala Harris actually choose the colour white to deliver her victory speech back in November, which is another suffragette colour, so it made sense that she would choose purple this time around. The colours represent "the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity." Clearly, there is a lot of meaning behind the bold colour.
