Women have made an incredible impact on the United States: Harriet Tubman rescued hundreds of slaves, Susan B. Anthony fought for a woman’s right to vote, Sandra Day O’Connor was the first female Supreme Court Justice, and the list goes on. This presidential election marks another history-changing moment for women.
For the first time in U.S. history, a woman has won enough electoral votes to become the presidential nominee of a major American political party. After a long and hard- fought race, Hillary Clinton made headlines after the June 7th primaries as the Democratic Party’s presumed presidential nominee. Following her victory, she said, “To every little girl who dreams big: Yes, you can be anything you want — even president.” We agree.
