Kamala Harris Becomes First Woman, First Black, First South Asian US Vice President

Kamala Devi Harris has made history as the ‘first woman, first black, first Indian American, first Asian American, and first African American’ to be elected as the Vice President of the United States.

The 56-year-old California Senator history-making victory has revived hopes of millions of women in the country, who are often overlooked, historically underrepresented, and systematically ignored since the 244 years of American history.

Joe Biden, the new President-elect, has picked Kamala Harris as his running mate in August, months after she put an end to her own presidential campaign due to lack of financial resources.

She became the third woman to be selected as the vice-presidential nominee in the US. Before her, the then Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in 2008 and New York Representative Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 were the other two female nominees.

On Saturday night in Delaware, during acceptance speech as vice president-elect, Harris also noted the historic moment.

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities,” said Harris.

“To the children of our country, regardless of gender, our country has sent you a clear message: Dream with ambition, lead with conviction and see yourselves in a way that others may not, simply because they’ve never seen it before. But know that we will applaud you every step of the way,” she added.
