Description



About the Book



In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. Here, Clinton celebrates 13 American women who shaped our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. Full color.



Book Synopsis



Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted.

Throughout United States history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. 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.

I really like the variety of women represented in the book and the illustrations. Each biography would be a good starting point for a discussion or more research. My only disappointment is that on many of the pages there was room for more detail about the girl or woman discussed which would really have enhanced the picture of their life and contributions. Will still use it in my classroom, but will supplement it will other sources or information.
