Vogue – Senator Kamala Harris made history many times over when it was announced today that she would be Joe Biden’s running mate. She is the first Black woman and the first Indian American woman to be a vice-presidential candidate. Unbelievably, she’s only the second female Democrat who has been up for the job—in the span of almost 40 years, at that. Harris, who is from California, follows in the footsteps of New Yorker Geraldine Ferraro, who was on the ticket with Walter Mondale in 1984.

Even before Harris was revealed as Biden’s pick, press coverage of his search had already been deemed sexist by some. Washington’s double standards take many forms; one of them is its dress code.
