We're live RIGHT NOW with #KamalaHarris. Tune in now to watch the Senator answer questions directly from the women of the Supermajority community here:
On breaking barriers: "You don't start on one side and end up on the other. There is breaking involved. When you break things, it can be painful...It will be worth it every single time, but it is not without pain, hard work, and great effort." — @KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris What is @KamalaHarris' superpower?

"One of the greatest powers that each of us has, and it's a matter of whether or not we see it or identify it for what it is, is to lift each other up. Women do that so well." #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris #KamalaHarris calls out the fact that "we have not yet on the debate stage for the presidential nomination in the year of our lord 2019 talked about choice and the fact that women's access to #reproductivehealth is full on under attack." @KamalaHarris #theMajorityRule
@KamalaHarris What are we going to do about gun violence?

"This for me is not an intellectual or theoretical topic. I feel very strongly that leaders have not led because they've not had the courage to lead." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris On the #TitleX gag rule:
"There is no question that this is a moment where there is a full on attack against women's access to reproductive health...women will die because of these laws. And particularly poor women and women of color." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris "We have to be dedicated to the fact that if we say it's a value of this country to care about and support families, we have to understand what goes into raising a family, including affordable child care and paid family leave." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris #KamalaHarris calls out "pink collar jobs" — jobs that traditionally, because of the stereotypes about what women can and can't do, are "open" for women, and, by no coincidence, are paid the least, disproportionate to the value of the service. #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris #KamalaHarris on the disproportionate maternal mortality rate of black women: "It's literally about racial bias, about the fact that when a black woman walks into a clinic, her needs and pains are not taken seriously." #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris .@rowefinkbeiner asks how #KamalaHarris will address #VAW & support survivors.

"It's about respecting women's bodies. It's about understanding that women in America still do not feel safe. And we need to acknowledge it in the way we deal with it, and stop it." #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner On #VAW & #DV: "One of the best ways we can avoid and prevent is it to make sure women have economic opportunities so they're not reliant on an abusive relationship to keep a roof over their head and put food on the table." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner "I am a very strong advocate of re-franchising the vote among the formerly incarcerated. It is inhumane, frankly, that we would take away one of the most fundamental rights of citizenship after they've served their time." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner "I plan to be a president that is engaged in what's happening around state elections...We can talk all we want at a national level about what we're going to do, but it doesn't matter if it doesn't hit the streets." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner On electability and being asked if she's electable:

"This is not a new conversation for me. I've heard this conversation every time I have — and here's the operative word — won." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner "So much of what our movement is about is reinforcing the fact that we need to remind people that we have agency and we have strength and we have power. If we have the ability to believe and have faith in what can be unburdened by what has been." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris @rowefinkbeiner On whether or not we're "ready" for a woman president:

"We cannot wait for other people to give us permission to tell us what is possible." #KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
