Abstract

What can Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris’ speech at the Democratic National Convention in August tell us about how she will campaign heading into the November presidential election? Emilia Belknap writes that Harris’ speech gave insights into how she views the American family and discusses how Harris has picked up familiar gendered themes since her presidential campaign. Additionally, Belknap discusses how President Donald Trump has picked up stereotypes with which to attack her. However, with police brutality and violence against Black Americans spurring calls to defund the police, Harris needs to focus on shedding her label as a ‘Top Cop’ to win the votes of left-leaning Democrats this November.
