Donald Trump met with Democratic congressional leaders, included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, to discuss immigration and the future of DACA recipients, or "Dreamers." When the dinner meeting ended, no one seemed to know whether an agreement had been reached.
According to Ashley Parker at the Washington Post:
At one point, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross asked, “What exactly does the president get out of this deal?” As Pelosi, the only woman at the table of 11, tried to make her point — that the president gets the cooperation of the Democrats, which he will likely need on a host of issues — the men in the room began talking over her and one another. “Do the women get to talk around here?” Pelosi interjected, according to two people familiar with the exchange.
There was, at last, silence, and she was not interrupted again.
That is every day at work for me. I stand up to them, but damn it's like working two jobs at once!— AltCivilServant (@AltCivilServant) September 15, 2017
I am now arguing with men I know to be good... But just cannot see how often we women are silenced— Mary (@RMJunkie) September 15, 2017
I am absolutely shocked that they actually listened to her and stopped talking over her.— Rachel Ward (@RachelWard) September 15, 2017
"There was, at last, silence, and she was not interrupted again" are the most beautiful, glorious words I've ever read— Audrey Bochsler (@nowwhylater) September 15, 2017
Pelosi is amazing. Shows her power that it worked! And not just once. Wow wow wow.— Linda S (@WritePaintDraw) September 15, 2017
