I'm watching the convention, and I'll say only this:— ✨ ashley ✨ (@AshleyEsqueda) July 29, 2016
I did not realize how much this moment meant to me as a woman until right now.
Let's be real here. I wrote part of this story on Clinton's nomination in the NY Times pumping room. https://t.co/vyS1jzqrIZ— jodikantor (@jodikantor) July 29, 2016
As a single mother I say "It takes a village" probably every other day. #imwithher— (((Rachel Sklar))) ❄️ (@rachelsklar) July 29, 2016
The little girl in me just realized, for the very first time, how much it really means to me to see a woman up on that stage. #imwithher— Alexandra Ostrow (@AlexandraOstrow) July 29, 2016
The only way this speech could be more inspiring for women is if Hillary Clinton ends it by busting a ghost.— Sam Rullo (@SamRullo) July 29, 2016
Hillary is giving the speech of her life and there are dudes whining that she isn't smiling enough. pic.twitter.com/ZlooNkAR2Q— DC Women Kicking Ass (@dcwomenkicknass) July 29, 2016
A woman is more than clothing, and Hillary is one of the most brilliant, accomplished women in the world.— Emmy Bengtson (@EmmyA2) July 29, 2016

I have a dream: that all the news networks turn the reactions to Clinton's speech over to women reporters and analysts tonight.— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) July 28, 2016
Hillary Clinton in white, like a suffragist, like a suffragette — #IAmAFeminist because of you.— Kara Calavera (@KaraCalavera) July 29, 2016
Kind of amazing that we're watching a female presidential nominee argue that her male opponent is too hysterical & emotionally volatile.— kelly (@kelly_erin) July 29, 2016
The phrase "women's rights are human rights" isn't radical now like it was in 1995. Wanna know why?— Emmy Bengtson (@EmmyA2) July 29, 2016
Because Hillary said it in 1995.
just imagined a bunch of little boys across our nation watching a woman give this speech tonight and i exhaled #DemsInPhilly— Sara “Bo” Schaefer (@saraschaefer1) July 29, 2016
A 14 year old abandoned housemaid grew up to raise the first female nominee for president. Read that again.— Taylor Trudon (@taylortrudon) July 29, 2016
