BOCA RATON, Fla. — Just over one hundred years after the passing of qomen's suffrage, on Jan. 20 the United States is getting its first female vice president, Kamala Harris.
There has not been a female vice president in American history. The riot at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday may have overshadowed Harris' achievements, but her steps forward represent a move toward equality for women and Black people.
Jane Caputi, Profesor of women gender and sexuality studies at Florida Atlantic University said a woman's touch might be what the nation needs to move forward, "Women exercise complex moral reasoning, they listen better, they're willing to compromise, they build consensus; these are values associated with women. And, yes, that's absolutely what we need to heal the nation."
