Streep: Hillary Clinton will be our first woman president

Multiple Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep has said Hillary Clinton will be the next woman president of the United States.

Speaking to cheering audiences at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Streep said voters and delegates had made history by choosing Mrs Clinton to be the Democratic presidential candidate.

"Tonight, more than 200 years after Deborah Samson fought and nearly a hundred years after women got the vote, you people have made history," she said.

"And you're going to make history again in November because Hillary Clinton will be our first woman president and she will be a great president."
