For years I as a, Feminist I always felt there should of been a woman in office. I feel like maybe with an Woman as Vice President Or President. Maybe there would be a little more peace or balance in the world today.
But in history Woman always fighting an striving for the same rights an equality as men. From not being to vote or having a platform, to now being able to not only vote but to actually have not only a platform. But to actually run for President be in the House of Representatives, in the democratic an republicans houses.
I say all that to say this, even though we’ve took a few steps back. Let’s not forget in some cases we’ve came so far. I thinks it’s a big deal to potentially have, Kamala Harris as Vice President. It gives other woman an younger individuals something to look up to. Something to inspire an motivate them. An encourage them as woman we can do anything we can strive for greatness an do the unthinkable.
But I think it’s time!
Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has selected Senator Kamala Harris of California as his vice-presidential running mate, will appear with her in Delaware on Wednesday afternoon where they will deliver remarks. The two will also take part in a virtual grass-roots fund-raiser Wednesday evening.
As his former rival who sharply criticized him in the Democratic primaries, Ms. Harris emerged as a vocal supporter of Mr. Biden after ending her own campaign and has become a prominent advocate of racial-justice legislation after the death of George Floyd while in police custody in late May.
Ms. Harris, 55, is the first Black woman and the first person of Indian descent to be nominated for national office by a major party, and only the fourth woman in history to be chosen for one of their presidential tickets. She brings to the race a far more vigorous campaign style than Mr. Biden’s, including a gift for capturing moments of raw political electricity on the debate stage and elsewhere, and a personal identity and family story that many find inspiring.
Mr. Biden announced the selection over text message and in a follow-up email to supporters: “Joe Biden here. Big news: I’ve chosen Kamala Harris as my running mate. Together,
with you, we’re going to beat Trump.
Woman’s History: The women’s suffrage movement was a decades-long fight to win the right to vote for women in the United States.
It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
The campaign for women’s suffrage began in earnest in the decades before the Civil War. During the 1820s and 30s, most states had extended the franchise to all white men, regardless of how much money or property they had.
At the same time, all sorts of reform groups were proliferating across the United States— temperanceleagues, religious movements, moral-reform societies, anti-slavery organizations—and in many of these, women played a prominent role.
Meanwhile, many American women were beginning to chafe against what historians have called the “Cult of True Womanhood”: that is, the idea that the only “true” woman was a pious, submissive wife and mother concerned exclusively with home and family.
Put together, all of these contributed to a new way of thinking about what it meant to be a woman and a citizen of the United States.
