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.

This is such a easy book to pick up and read a few pages without having to commit to a whole book. It reminds me of women I have known and admired for a long time like Maya Angelou, Jane Goodall and Edie Winsor, but also introduced me to amazing women I never knew about like Frances Perkins. An American workers-rights advocate who served as the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945. She also made history as the first woman and first LGBT person to serve in the U.S. Cabinet.

I feel this book is important. Full of pioneering women. I also feel strongly that it should have been about four books that went into deeper detail about the women. I will be buying this book someday as i find that even this soon after finishing it I already can't remember things from it.

Loved this book! I think it's a great introduction to some awesome American women who made history -- some were well-known women, and others I hadn't heard of before or didn't know as much about.
