translated from Spanish: Kamala Harris: «While I may be the first woman in this position, I won’t be the last»

Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris on Saturday recognized women, particularly African-Americans, who supported her in breaking down the barriers that have allowed men, mainly white, to occupy the highest political positions in the United States for two centuries.» Tonight I reflect on her struggle, her determination and the strength of her vision to see what lastres can be removed,» said Harris, who wore a white suit in homage to women’s suffrage. Harris described as a testament the character of President-elect Joe Biden who «had the audacity to break one of the most substantial barriers that exist in our country and choose a woman as his vice president.» While I may be the first woman in this position, I won’t be the last,» Harris said in her first post-election address to the nation. California’s 56-year-old senator, also the first person of South Asian descent elected to the vice presidency, represents the multiculturalism that defines the United States but is largely absent from the centers of power in Washington.Su black identity has allowed her to speak very personally during a year of protests against police brutality and systemic racism. As the woman who has reached the highest-ranking popular election position in american government history, her victory brings hope to women frustrated by Hillary Clinton’s defeat four years ago. Harris told the children to «dream with ambition, lead with conviction, and see in a way that is simply impossible for others because they have never seen it before.»
