The Women’s March on Washington has released its special honorees, a list of “revolutionary leaders” who will be lauded during Saturday’s event.

One name is conspicuously missing: Hillary Clinton.

The Women’s March group released an official document Thursday outlining its “guiding vision and principles” as well as an official honorees list—these are women whose activism has “paved the way” for women seeking equality.

The document even begins with a specific reference to Clinton—a quote, “women’s rights are human rights,” attributed to the Democratic Presidential candidate—but never actually mentions Hillary Clinton by name.

The revelation inspired an immediate social media backlash from March attendees who felt that Clinton’s Electoral College loss was part of the reason the March itself was happening. According to these Twitter warriors, it seems Clinton’s name was left off the list by design.

One influential group of Clinton supporters even sent an open letter to March organizers, and asked their followers to sign a petition calling on the Women’s March to edit their document to include Clinton’s name.

The Women’s March organizers have yet to respond to the request.
