According to NBC News data, Pence interrupted Harris almost twice as often as she interrupted him

Among the similarities between President Donald Trump and his No. 2: Vice President Mike Pence also didn’t hesitate to interrupt his opponent in the debate According to data from NBC News, Pence interrupted Kamala Harris about twice more times she interrupted him during Wednesday’s vice-presidential debate

It’s a diagram that matches research on how comfortable men are interrupting women in many contexts, including meetings: according to a 2014 study from George Washington University , men interrupted 33% more when speaking with a woman than a man, and women did not interrupt to the same degree

In the end, Pence interrupted Harris 16 times, based on NBC data, while she interrupted him nine times.The two are a far cry from how often Trump did the same in the past. ‘former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, though Wednesday’s blackout still shows a broader dynamic of male candidates willing to talk about women

Harris has made it clear on several occasions that she will not sit by the « Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking, » she has said on several occasions, actively calling out to Pence about her behavior. exasperation may not have won everyone by their side, but it resonated with many women on social media who went through the same experience After the debate, a similar dynamic even seemed to play out on a CNN panel

« Mr. Vice-President, I’m talking » @KamalaHarris is all the women we’ve talked to at her workplace #VPDebate # GenderLens2020

Amazing moment in the moment on CNN where Gloria Borger, the only woman on a panel with 4 men, begins to explain what it was like for women to watch Kamala be repeatedly interrupted but cannot finish because the men on the panel interrupt her and she says « M Santorum, I’m talking « 

In one case, Pence questioned Harris’ criminal justice record as California’s attorney general – on which she has also been scrutinized by progressive activists – apparently presenting herself as the authority of the Harris’ criminal justice system tried to respond to the criticism and asked why he was trying to teach her about an area where she is an expert

« I am not going to sit here and receive lessons from the Vice President on what it means to uphold the laws of our country, » she said

Pence’s approach and demeanor throughout the debate – including his reluctance to answer questions put to him on crucial issues including healthcare, while urging Harris to provide him with answers – read like a condescending double standard that many women encounter in the workplace, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noted in a tweet

Pence to demand that Harris answer * her * personal questions when he won’t even answer the moderator’s is rude and exemplary of the gender dynamics many women face at work

As Pence pointed out on Wednesday, while his style and Trump’s may be different, the two are more than comfortable taking performative postures – and talking to others to do so – while often lacking in substance.
