Chelsea Clinton Announces ‘She Persisted’ Book

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is publishing a new children’s book apparently inspired by Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The picture book, titled She Persisted, is named after Warren refused to be silent and was cut off by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It will reportedly showcase 13 inspiring American women—including Nellie Bly, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, and Sally Ride—and will be available for sale May 30. “I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than,” Clinton said in a statement. “The 13 women in She Persisted all overcame adversity to help shape our country—sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. With this book, I want to send a message to young readers around the country—and the world—that persistence is power.” Chelsea Clinton is a board member of IAC, the parent company of The Daily Beast.
