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 American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. 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.

In diesem beeindruckenden Bildband versammelt die Fotografin Kate T. Parker mehr als 175 Aufnahmen von Mädchen im Alter von 5 bis 18 Jahren. Sie porträtiert abenteuerlustige, freche und neugierige, aber auch ruhige, nachdenkliche und kreative Mädchen. Eines haben sie alle gemeinsam: Sie sind authentisch und mutig genug, sich vor der Kamera so zu zeigen, wie sie wirklich sind: wild, frei und wunderbar! Ihre Aufnahmen beweisen, dass wahre Schönheit nichts mit einer bestimmten Körperform zu tun hat, nichts damit, ob man lächelt, seine Haare frisiert oder sich hübsch zurechtgemacht hat. Dieser unvergessliche Fotoband sprengt alle Stereotype und zeigt, dass Mädchen alles sein können, was sie wollen – solange sie sie selbst sein dürfen.
