About the Book



"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.

They all certainly persisted"--Publisher marketing.



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.

Love the message, it’s probably a little more appropriate for 5+ but I’m still glad we got it for our 7mo & 2.5 year old.

Great book for girls

Overall, the book is great. It tells the story of a number of feminist changemakers who overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to persist and succeed at reaching their goals. It has great themes, racial diversity and covers many issues simply enough for kids to understand. My one complaint is that the first and last page are worded in a way that makes it clear the book was written for girls. I bought the book for my son who I want to learn about strong female role models, so I have to change the wording around to make it apply to "all" and not just girls. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.
