Former First Daughter and offspring of Web Hubbell (again I kid), Chelsea Mezvinsky (nee) Clinton has written a children’s picture book featuring the title She Persisted inspired by Sen. Elizabeth Warren who was punished for impugning Jeff Sessions during a debate on his confirmation for Attorney General.
The book will tell the stories of 13 women who overcame immense opposition to achieve their goals: 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. Not a peep about Warren from whom she stole the “she persisted” publicity stunt. Meh.
Chelsea should have included other women who persisted—Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick.
