President Biden Will Deliver His First Formal Address

President Biden will deliver his first formal address to a joint session of Congress Wednesday night. It will be the first time in U.S. history that the two officials behind the president are both women.⁣

Like his predecessors, Biden will deliver his speech in the House chamber, standing before lawmakers. Kamala Harris, the first female vice president, and Nancy Pelosi, the first female speaker of the House, will sit on the dais behind the president.

“Tonight, for the first time in American history, two women will be up at the dais for a president’s address to Congress,” Senator Elizabeth Warren wrote on Twitter. “I hope little girls everywhere will be watching — and dreaming big.”⁣
