  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Historic moment as US president appears alongside two women while delivering joint session” – below is their description.

    US president Joe Biden’s address to Congress broke a historic glass ceiling as two women – vice president Kamala Harris and House speaker Nancy Pelosi – sat behind the president for the first time in US history.

    The seating arrangement carried a symbolic meaning for the advancement of US women in recent decades, since Ms Harris and Ms Pelosi stand first and second in the presidential line of succession respectively.

    The two women are playing a vital role in the early days of the Biden presidency, with Ms Harris as a close adviser and tie-breaker in an evenly divided Senate and Ms Pelosi helping to marshal the president’s legislative agenda through Congress.
