Chelsea Clinton Is Honoring Mom Hillary with Her Latest Project
Chelsea Clinton is writing a book, and it’s basically a girl power battle cry. The former first daughter is coming out with a picture book titled She Persisted, a reference to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comment about Elizabeth Warren that became a symbol of the women’s movement.
“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, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The book, which is illustrated by Alexandra Boiger, tells the stories of 13 women who overcame opposition, including Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Clara Lemlich, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, and Sonia Sotomayor. According to EW, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may also make a surprise appearance.

“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.”
She Persisted hits stores on May 30. Preorder your copy today on Amazon.
