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

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-The lives of 13 courageous and inspiring women who overcame incredible odds to help others are introduced in this superbly narrated adaptation of the text by Chelsea Clinton. Alexandra Boiger's illustrations depict the journey on the underground railroad as Harriet Tubman helps lead others to safety. A young Florence Griffith Joyner runs across the Mojave desert and wins the 100 and 200 meter sprints. Sonia Sotomayor dreams of being a judge as a little girl. Other featured women include Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, and Oprah Winfrey. An inspiring score combined with the positive message of the text makes this adaptation a must-see, especially for young girls. © Copyright 2019.
