As Kamala Devi Harris becomes the first female vice president of the United States of America, she speaks of how women and lift women as they arrive in powerful positions. On her social profiles she calls herself, “Vice President-Elect of the United States. Senator, Wife, Momala, Auntie. Fighting for the people”
She said while she is the first vice president elect for America, she will not be the last. A reminder of how “little girls across the country are dreaming bigger now. 💛”
Indian-origin Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, California in 1964 and made history by becoming the first woman of colour to be nominated for national office by a major party. She is inspired by the two women in her life, her mom Shyamala Gopalan and her sister. Raised by a single mother, 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 on women.
