Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists
and little kids who are ready to take on the world to
thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an
answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted.
Throughout American history, there have always been women
who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to
fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's
refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous
celebration of women who persevered in the face of
adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen
American women who helped shape our country through their
tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by
staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They
all certainly persisted.
She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak
up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has
ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down,
and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or
unimportant or small.
With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book
shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their
paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence
