On Saturday, November 7, Senator Kamala Harris made history by becoming the first woman and person of color elected to the office of the vice presidency. Harris's win sparked reactions from women and young girls across the country, celebrating a victory for women's advancement. I know I got chills when I heard the news.
To continue this celebration, here are some of the best reactions to Senator Harris's win.
