The Follow-Up to ‘She Persisted’ Celebrates Badass Women Around the World
Who could forget that incredible moment last year, when Elizabeth Warren stood on the senate floor objecting to the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General? Unless you were sleeping through all of 2017, the answer to that one is: No one.
After she refused to be silenced — and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell infamously admonished her, saying, “Nevertheless, she persisted”— the moment went on to become a feminist battle cry. It’s also what inspired Chelsea Clinton to pen her now-bestselling picture book, She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World.
From Ruby Bridges to Sally Ride, that first installment highlighted change-makers from throughout U.S. history who all stood their ground in the face of adversity. And now, Clinton is back with a brand-new follow-up, just in time for Women’s History Month.
She Persisted: Around the World tells the stories of another batch of amazing women — this time, from countries across the globe. Through Clinton’s words and the gorgeous illustrations of Alexandra Boiger, kids can learn the inspiring tales of women like activist Malala Yousafzai and the physicist Marie Curie, while dreaming of their own history-making futures.
