Women around the world have long dreamed big, even when they've been told their dreams didn't matter.
They've spoken out, risen up and fought for what's right, even when they've been told to be quiet. Whether in science, the arts, sports or activism, women and girls throughout history have been determined to break barriers and change the status quo. They haven't let anyone get in their way and have helped us better understand our world and what's possible. In this companion book to "She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World", Chelsea Clinton introduces readers to a group of thirteen incredible women who have shaped history all across the globe.
Now abridged as a board book for the earliest of readers, "She Persisted Around the World" is a book for everyone who has ever aimed high and been told to step down, for everyone who has ever raised their voice and been told to quiet down, and for everyone who has ever felt small, unimportant or unworthy.
