The First Second Gentleman 

Doing the critical work of normalizing the idea of women in politics

Kamala Harris is the first female vice president the United States has ever had. As a result, her husband Doug Emhoff is the first second gentleman in our nation’s history. He’s working to model what that role can entail, and being a quiet force for gender equality.

“I always bristle at the idea of men as allies because men are active participants. He avoids the pitfalls many men fall into — ‘I care because I’m a husband, I’m a father, I have a mother,’” Klein told The 19th. “He just cares because he is a human being and a participant in society and is watching a fundamental constitutional right being ripped away.”

How strange.
