Hil­lary hails ‘big­gest crack’ in glass ceil­ing

The Myanmar Times - - World -

HIL­LARY Clin­ton told Democrats they had “put the big­gest crack” yet in the glass ceil­ing for women, as she be­came the first fe­male White House nom­i­nee for a ma­jor po­lit­i­cal party.

“If there are any lit­tle girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say I may be­come the first woman pres­i­dent, but one of you is next,” she told the con­ven­tion in a video mes­sage.

Ms Clin­ton will ad­dress the con­ven­tion fi­nale to­day to for­mally ac­cept the nom­i­na­tion.

Mean­while, about 100 Hol­ly­wood ac­tors and mu­sic stars, from Lena Dun­ham to Moby, have signed a pe­ti­tion against what they say is the “hate­ful ide­ol­ogy” of Repub­li­can White House hope­ful Don­ald Trump.

“We are a coalition of artists who are join­ing mil­lions of Amer­i­cans in our com­mit­ment to de­feat the pre­sump­tive Repub­li­can nom­i­nee for pres­i­dent, Don­ald Trump,” the on­line pledge reads. –
