Bring the current Veep, Kamala Harris, to your home with our exclusive ornament. Kamala Devi Harris is an American politician and attorney who is the 49th and current vice president of the United States. She is the first female vice president and the highest-ranking female official in U.S. history, as well as the first African American and first Asian American vice president.
When she accepted the nomination she acknowledged the full weight of the historical moment. “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” she said. She was also wearing a white pantsuit.
For a many a woman in office there is nothing more self-consciously symbolic than a white pantsuit. It has meaning because it’s a nod to suffragists who claimed white as one of three colors to represent them. Geraldine Ferraro wore a white pantsuit to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for vice president in 1984. Hillary Clinton echoed Ferraro when she wore her own white pantsuit to accept her 2016 nomination as the Democratic presidential candidates.
