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 and the rallying cry "Nevertheless, she persisted". In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who persisted and helped shape our country through their tenacity - sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. She Persisted is a reminder of our power 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!
