A digital color image of two women wearing white caps at the March on Washington.
The women are depicted in profile from the waist up, facing towards the right side of the image. The woman on the left wears a black jacket over a white shirt and holds her hands in front of her, the strap for a bag on her proper right forearm. The woman next to her on the right side of the image wears a blue cardigan over a plaid top. The photograph was captured outdoors, with the National Mall out of focus in the background.
