First Lady Melania Trump hosted a women’s luncheon today at the White House’s State Dining Room, honoring and celebrating International Women’s Day .

The First Lady spoke about her early life, growing up under Communism.

“As an immigrant myself, having grown up in a communist society, I know all too well the value and importance of freedom and equal opportunity,” the First Lady said. “Ideas which this great nation was founded and has continued to strive towards throughout its history.”

The White House also announced that there would indeed be continued the Easter Egg Roll tradition this year, which will be held on Monday, April 17, a day after the Easter holiday.

Despite the call made by the #DayWithoutAWoman protest organizers to wear red to show solidarity with their gender, most the women at the event did not wear red, including Melania, First Daughter Ivanka Trump, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, GOP Sen. Susan Collins, second lady Karen Pence and fashion designer Rachel Roy.

The First Lady, dressed in a black Ralph Lauren, was given a standing ovation when she entered the room. Later on, both President Trump and Vice President Pence dropped by to say hi to the crowd, reports The Gateway Pundit.

The President tweeted his support for the annual celebration of International Women’s Day, which is a tradition since 1909.
