Kamala Harris

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is the latest woman of Congress to be interrupted and silenced by her male colleagues for trying to effectively do her job, in this latest instance as a member of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee. After making Attorney General Jeff Sessions “nervous” with her on point questions (showing that grit that made her an effective prosecutor), she was later called “hysterical” by a CNN commentator and former Trump surrogate. Although it’s upsetting to see workplace sexism so casually on public display, you can be damn sure that Kamala Harris will not back down. ‘Nevertheless, she persisted’
