“She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World” is the new children’s book written by former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton. The book tells the stories of 13 inspirational women who overcame immense opposition to achieve their goals.

The title of the book comes from a quote by Senator Mitch McConnell after the Senate silenced Elizabeth Warren in February, as she attempted to protest Jeff Sessions’ nomination as U.S. Attorney General. “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” McConnell said.

Flipping McConnell’s words into a positive life mantra, this book celebrates these American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated and sometimes by just captivating an audience. These women never took “no” for an answer and always, without fail, persisted.

Chelsea Clinton stated she wrote this book 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, unimportant or small.”

The 13 featured women include Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sonia Sotomayor — and one very special cameo.
