Publisher's Summary

Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to 13 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 13 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.

This book tells listeners that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power.

This book features Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor - and one special cameo.

Good message

REALLY great message. Persisting is important. The repetitiveness was not for me & annoyed me.
