Kamala Harris makes history as the first woman to become vice president. Harris is also the first Black person and first South Asian American person to be elected to the role. An attorney, Harris has served as the junior United States senator from California since 2017. Here’s are some of her most powerful quotes from American people to feminism.

On Americans

The American dream belongs to all of us.

The truth is that the vast majority of Americans are good, fair, and just, and they want their country to reflect those ideals.

On Running for Office

Here’s the thing: every office I’ve run for I was the first to win. First person of color. First woman. First woman of color. Every time.

On being a woman

I was raised to be an independent woman, not the victim of anything.

If we do not lift up women and families, everyone will fall short.

On women voicing their opinions

What I want young women and girls to know is: You are powerful and your voice matters. You’re going to walk into many rooms in your life and career where you may be the only one who looks like you or who has had the experiences you’ve had.

On access for safety

I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health, period.

On abortion rights

We cannot tolerate a perspective that is about going backward and not understanding women have agency. Women have value. Women have authority to make decisions about their own lives and their own bodies.

On racism and protests

Let’s speak the truth: People are protesting because Black people have been treated as less than human in America. Because our country has never fully addressed the systemic racism that has plagued our country since its earliest days. It is the duty of every American to fix. No longer can some wait on the sidelines, hoping for incremental change. In times like this, silence is complicity.

On uplifting and empowering women

Here’s the truth people need to understand: To tackle the challenges of the twenty-first century, we must empower women and families. If we do not lift up women and families, everyone will fall short.

On following your dreams and ambitions

There will be people who say to you, ‘You are out of your lane.’ They are burdened by only having the capacity to see what has always been instead of what can be. But don’t you let that burden you.

On her mom

My mother would tell us ‘Don’t sit around and complain about things; do something.’ So I did something. I devoted my life to making real the words carved in the United States Supreme Court: Equal justice under law.

On not being complacent

My mother would look at me and she’d say, ‘Kamala, you may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last.’ That’s why breaking those barriers is worth it. As much as anything else, it is also to create that path for those who will come after us.
