About the Ladies of the Inaugural yarn colors: The Ladies of the Inaugural yarn is dyed in the colors that were worn during President Biden's Inauguration on Jan. 21. First Lady Jill Biden wore a two tone teal coat, Vice President Kamala Harris was radiant in purple with a silver necklace, former First Lady Laura Bush wore a beautiful periwinkle purple coat with black and gray trim, former First Lady Michelle Obama sported burgundy with a gold belt, and Inaugural Poet, Amanda Gorman made her presence known wearing a sunny yellow coat with a red hair piece.
Seeing a woman being sworn in as Vice-President was thrilling. Yet while women make up 51% of the US population, they only represent about 30% of positions in state and local governments and women occupy only 27% of the seats in Congress. As a former NYS State Senate representative I know how challenging it is for women to run for office. And for people of color it's even more difficult. That's why we will be donating $5 from each Ladies of the Inaugural set sold to "She Should Run", a national, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization working to increasing the number of women running for public office at all levels of government. By providing them with information, resources, and support, we can encourage more women to run for elected office. Our society functions better when women's voices, and the voices of women of color, are also at the table.
