If there was a moment this week when Kamala Harris was Everywoman, it came as Vice-President Mike Pence cut her short mid-sentence and proceeded to speak over her in the US vice-presidential debate . Watching Pence in action was all-too-familiar for any woman who has struggled to make herself heard or felt patronised in the public domain, with research showing that interrupting is highly gendered . But Harris’ response – calling him out with a cool, but firm: ‘Mr Vice-President, I’m speaking’ – was a masterclass in how to handle the scenario. If Democrat Joe Biden wins the US election, Harris will become not just America’s first female vice-president , but also the first woman of colour to hold the office. It’s been an election campaign full of big personalities and unprecedented plot twists, but Harris’ performance in the VP debate has left nobody in doubt that if the Dems win, she will be more than able to hold her own.
