I’m with her!


Last night, Hillary Clinton made history when she became the first woman to accept the presidential nomination from a major party. The Democratic National Convention saw many passionate speeches from such strong women as Michelle Obama, America Ferrera, Lena Dunham, Chelsea Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Sarah Silverman, Elizabeth Banks, and Meryl Streep. President Obama, Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden also spoke.

While each speaker was inspiring, none had a moment quite as moving as Hillary’s ceiling-shattering acceptance speech. Seeing the first woman nominated for president by a major party made me feel like the future for women in this country is going to be stronger and brighter than we had ever imagined. Every time a speaker said, “I’m with her,” it was a blow to the glass ceiling that has restricted women from equality for so long. And listening to Hillary’s acceptance speech embodied the empowerment for women that she has produced with her campaign.

This year has been one of firsts for the United States. The first time someone with no political experience or qualification whatsoever has been nominated for president by a major party, and by the other the first woman has been nominated. Be a part of history, and go vote! And if you are not yet old enough to vote, you can still be a part of the process! Volunteer in your area for the campaign of the candidate you support!

To quote one of my favorite artists, Lin Manuel-Miranda: History has its eyes on you. So, help the United States make history and make progress- vote for Hillary! I’m with her, are you?
