This year, the United States Democratic National Convention included several key female speakers that give us hope for the future of America. After years of seeing the states regress into a place of hatred, racism, and misogyny, the 2020 election invites another chance to choose love and acceptance. Here are the best female speakers at 2020 democratic convention.
All the lovely ladies that spoke in the democratic national convention this year are an inspiration and an asset to America. With their lead, we’re going to see so many more women of all races taking back their power.
If you can’t wait to hear more about some of the best female speakers at the democratic national convention, you’re going to absolutely love this article:
1. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (AOC)
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is actually the youngest woman to serve in US Congress! So we can expect to see so much more of her in the future.
In just over a minute, AOC was able to deliver a phenomenal speech about the future that she wants from the US. And it includes repairing the wounds of hatred, racism, misogyny, colonization, and homophobia. So that is cause we can definitely all get behind.
AOC has definitely helped incite some hope for a more accepting future America.
2. Michelle Obama
The former first lady of the United States Michelle Obama also shared words at the Democratic National Convention this year. This lovely lady that we have all come to love and respect more and more as we got to know her shared the following point in her speech:
“Who we choose as our president in this election will determine whether or not we honor [the] struggle [of our ancestors] and chip away at that injustice”.
And she touches on more profound points about how far America has gone downhill since the Obama administration ended in 2016. She highlights how many Americans have turned their backs on the country in favor of chaos and apathy.
Her speech is compelling and rings true for the current situation of our country. If you’re on the fence about voting, certainly watch Michelle Obama’s statement above. Her words are so crucial for all of us to hear with all that has been going on.
3. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted the fourth night of the Democratic National Convention. This actor and comedian also jested that they were going to add a fifth night to the convention that would consist of them playing Michelle Obama’s speech on a loop. (So you should definitely give it a watch above if you haven’t yet gotten the opportunity.)
This hilarious woman consistently roasts Trump throughout her hosting. And if you’d like to see more, you can also check out this video that highlights a few other things that she says on The Guardian.
With her as a host, the fourth night of the DNC took an amusing turn. Especially with all of the heavy things that have been going on in the world.
4. Kamala Harris
The 19th amendment guarantees the right for American women to vote. And Kamala Harris notes that we need to pick up the torch from the women that have blazed the way for us all.
This amazing woman is actually the first Black woman (and the first daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants) to get nominated for national office by a major political party.
While she has undoubtedly already made history with her empowering presence, having her as VP will be a fantastic pillar of progression for America.
