A win in the November presidential election would be a great moment for the country, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said hoping it would give other women and girls the feeling that whatever their dreams might be, they can achieve them in the US.

Clinton, 69, is all set to become the first woman presidential nominee of a major party and if elected she would be the first female US president.

“I think it would be a great moment for our country because every little boy and every little girl should be given the chance to go as far as his or her hard work and talent might take them. I see it in the eyes of little girls who come to my events. They’re so excited and they’re so proud because maybe they just discovered we haven’t had any girl presidents,” Clinton said in an interview.

Hillary Clinton would formally accept the nomination on the last day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

“To accept that nomination on Thursday night, I’ll be thinking about all the women who came before, all the women who went to Seneca Falls and, for the first time in history, talked about women’s equality and women’s rights, the suffragettes, the women who knocked their heads against all kinds of barriers and broke through in everything from, you know, space to politics,” she said.

“I hope that it gives other women and girls the feeling that whatever their dreams might be, they can achieve them in this country,” Clinton said.

Her running mate Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia said it would be a historic moment.

“The next President of the United States will be the President that will celebrate 100 years of women having the right to vote,” he said.

“I think having a woman President lead that celebration would be one of these instances of history really working out right in a poetic and beautiful way. And part of this journey that we’ve been on, because then, we’ll tackle the next imperfection we have. But this, this is something that is really, really exciting,” Kaine said.

It took the country 144 years for the women to get voting rights, she said.
