(NewsHill.org)- Just in time for the start of Women’s History Month, Melania Trump has backed congressional efforts to acquire a spot on the National Mall in Washington, DC, for a monument commemorating the fight for women’s suffrage.
To her more than 2 million followers on Twitter, First Lady Melania Trump shared on Tuesday her excitement with the introduction of bipartisan legislation in the House to help in the protection of a monument on the National Mall.
Trump has described women’s experiences throughout American history as “moving and powerful.” She believes a monument will “highlight” such stories.
The former first lady has stayed out of the spotlight as much as possible since she departed the White House in 2021. Just a few interviews and appearances have been granted in recent years. Instead, she has taken to tweeting comments to promote her charity efforts and line of Christmas decorations or celebrate holidays.
This Monday, Colorado Democrat Joe Neguse and Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko introduced H.R. 1318, the Women’s Suffrage National Monument Placement Act. It is recommended that legislation be introduced to authorize the installation of a monument on the National Mall to remember and celebrate the women’s suffrage campaign and the passing of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
A year ago, the bill’s principal supporters in the Senate were Republicans Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.
There is at least one select group in which members of both political parties have given their unqualified support to the move to honor the achievements of the women’s suffrage fight. Jill Biden leads the Women’s Suffrage National Monument Foundation, and all of the past first ladies– Melania Trump, Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Rosalynn Carter are all included in this group.
The memorial effort is being led by the Women’s Suffrage National Monument Foundation.
