Hillary Clinton owns a pink "p***y hat" from the Women's March on Washington, according to a New York Times interview.

When asked if she owned one, Clinton said: "I do! I was given one that's going into my archives."

The hats were worn by protestors the day after Trump's inauguration as they marched for LGBTQ rights, women's equality, abortion rights, and other issues. Clinton was not at the rally; she says in her book that if she had shown up, "nasty politics would unavoidably follow," so she watched the march at home.

Why it matters: These tests could help people know if they are able to go back to work, as well as aid researchers in tracking the scale and death rate of the disease — key data for current and future pandemic policies.
