On Thursday evening, Hillary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic nomination for president. That monumental moment is already impacting women of all ages, who are finally seeing a woman poised to shatter the highest glass ceiling there is in this country.
The Huffington Post spoke with girls and women ― from the ages of 6 to 102 ― at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to hear what the nomination means to them.
“It’s not just a symbolic move. It’s a massive amount of representation of voices that haven’t been heard in the past,” DNC attendee Anna Mehrabyan said.
Another attendee even said watching Clinton clinch the nomination was a “dream come true.”
“Women and children all around the world can grow up to be anything that they want to be, even president of the United States,” said Clinton supporter Rachel Gonzalez.
