Geraldine Ferraro accepts the nomination for VP, 1984


Ferraro: I proudly accept your nomination for vice president of the United States. [huge cheers]

VO: It was a unique moment for America, a special moment for women. In the convention hall, they cheered and gazed with emotion at the Congresswoman from New York, at Geraldine Ferraro, the daughter of an Italian immigrant, who spoke of faith.

Ferraro: To all the children of America, I say: The generation before ours kept faith with us, and, like them, we will pass on to you a stronger, more just America. Thank you. [huge cheers]
