This Is What Democracy Looks Like: Ms. Winter 2021 Issue Ushers in New Era in Gender Equality

For the first time in U.S. history, the presidential Cabinet appointments will reach gender parity; the House of Representatives is led by a feminist woman speaker, and feminists chair some of the most powerful committees, including the Appropriations and the Oversight and Reform committees; and Kamala Harris will be the first woman and first Black and South Asian to be vice president.
