When I was in the second grade, my class dressed up like the presidents and gave little speeches. It was a lot of fun, but what I remember most distinctly from Presidents’ Day was asking my mother why a woman had never been president. Looking back on what she told me, it was clear that she was trying to explain sexism to a second grader without making me feel like things couldn’t change.

July 28, 2016 marked a very important historical moment — when Hilary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic Party nomination for president. I don’t think I realized how important it was until I watched it happen.
