Abstract

Late yesterday, the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, announced that California Senator Kamala Harris would be his running mate in the November election. Amy Tatum writes that while Harris is a strong choice for the ticket, she is likely to face significant misogyny, and the framing of her as the ‘first’ woman of color to be chosen for the position, and ‘first’ woman to potentially hold the office, could mark her out as ‘other’ among some voters.
