It’s rare for me to turn on the TV for my daughter. Usually, I’m turning it off.
But she’s 11, and history was being made, and I wanted her to be able to say she saw it.
The Democratic convention nominated a woman to be a major party presidential candidate.
She watched politely, asked good questions, and after it was a fait accompli, I wondered what she would say:
“Why is this such a big deal?”
Well, I said, some women have run, including a few this year, but not been chosen as the nominee. Until now. Some people thought it would never happen, or take a much longer time.
“Why? Everyone knows a girl can do anything.”
