Vice President Mike Pence took the stage to a long standing ovation. The VP press office said they will send out a transcript of his remarks, but here are some highlights.
He talked about Women's History Month and how throughout the month, "President Trump has sought to honor women's contributions to the United States."
"Women in America make history every single day."
Singling out Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma, Pence said, "This is an extraordinary group of women."
Speaking of Trump, Pence said, "This is a president who has advanced the interests of women."
A case in point, he said, was Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. Conway, in the audience, received a standing ovation.
"American woman are making a difference in our administration," Pence said. He pledged the administration will "work tirelessly to empower women to climb the ladder of opportunity."
He introduced Florida Attorney General Pam Biondi as moderator and the pool was escorted out, to be replaced by the president's pool.
