SACRAMENTO -- Hillary Clinton volunteers and supporters gathered at her campaign office in downtown Sacramento to watch her historic speech.

It was a moment many Clinton volunteers have waited months for, some even years. And as Joan Hancock told FOX40, for some women, it's this moment they've waited decades for.

"Right towards the end [of Clinton's speech] my 97-year-old mother she called to just tell me how happy she is to be alive, to have three daughters that are sharing in this moment with her. It's very special," Hancock told FOX40.

Hancock spent most of Tuesday calling voters for Clinton. When the former secretary of state took the stage she said it was all worth it.

"I'm 63 and I'll be 64 this year and really it's a lot of women who went before me and did a lot of the grass roots work," Hancock said.

But the significance of the first woman nominee for a major political party was not lost on younger volunteers.

"She spoke not just about a certain generation of people in society but she spoke about everyone, related to everyone especially about women's rights which I think is really important on what's happening on the Republican government striping down women abortion rights," said Teodora Magda, a teenage Clinton volunteer.

Clinton's volunteers tell us they're confident Hillary Clinton will make history yet again in five months.

"[I believe she's going to win in November] I do, I absolutely do, she can't lose," Hancock said.
