39 Emotional Tweets That Capture The Thrill Of Hillary Clinton's History-Making Speech

History made.

Nearly 100 years after American women were granted the right to vote, a woman has asked us to vote for her to become president of the United States. 

Tonight, Hillary Clinton formally accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first woman presidential nominee in American history. 

Tonight, an American woman told her story of being a woman in America, and gave a speech that no woman has given before. For the first time in our nation’s history, a woman could feasibly lead our nation come November.  

The reactions to Clinton’s speech from women on Twitter were good enough to remind us why women endure being on Twitter. Here are 39 tweets that express the joy and emotion that millions of women felt tonight as Hillary Clinton became the first woman to speak the incredible words, “And so my friends, it with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise that I accept your nomination.”
