Here, just 10 of the reasons Hillary gave young women to vote for her this November.  

1. We heard how she's done her life's work, but the "why" of it matters so much, too. Hillary's mother implored her to "do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can." Those are words that have fueled her work, whether she was working for the Children's Defense Fund in Massachusetts on behalf of disabled children who were denied an education, or advocating for families whose lives were forever changed by 9/11.

2. She is now the only candidate for POTUS who wants to make sure you get the same paycheck as a dude who does the same exact job as you do. Here's her plan. Just try to find a mention of equal pay for equal work on Trump's page -- let alone an actual plan.
