Hillary Clinton, Candidate for President of the United States of America (28 July 2016)
On Thursday, 28 July 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton made history--the first woman nominated by a major political party for the office of president of the United States of America.
She's not the first American woman to have sought the office--I've posted before about the women who preceded her in seeking the office, including Victoria Woodhull, Belva Ann Bennet Lockwood, Margaret Chase Smith, Charlene Mitchell, Bella Abzug, Shirley Chisolm, Patsy Mink, and Linda Jenness. If you don't know these names, time to get to work on Google!
But, for all the women who tried before, HRC is the first to succeed in achieving the nomination. And she won't be the last . . .
