I ran-- I ran as a daughter who benefited from opportunities my mother never dreamed of.
I ran as a mother who worries about my daughter's future and a mother who wants to leave all children brighter tomorrows.
To build that future I see, we must make sure that women and men alike understand the struggles of their grandmothers and their mothers, and that women enjoy equal opportunities, equal pay, and equal respect.
Let us resolve and work toward achieving very simple propositions:
There are no acceptable limits, and there are no acceptable prejudices in the 21st century in our country.
You can be so proud that, from now on, it will be unremarkable for a woman to win primary state victories-- unremarkable to have a woman in a close race to be our nominee, unremarkable to think that a woman can be the president of the United States.
And that is truly remarkable, my friends.
