Streep took the stage with a scream, clearly energized by the party’s nomination of Hillary Clinton, who became the first woman nominated by a major party for the White House.

“We’ve got some fight left in us, don’t we?” she asked the crowd. “What does it take to be the first female anything? It takes grit and it takes grace.” The actress went on to list other women firsts, making the case to show that Clinton has both grit and grace.
