Chelsea Clinton announced that she is releasing a children’s picture book called ‘She Persisted’, which will contain thirteen stories about historical women in America.
The women include Oprah Winfrey, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman among many others and a 'cameo’ of an unrevealed woman who many expect to be Hillary Clinton.
"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. 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."
According to Elle, Clinton’s children’s book is in response to the Elizabeth Warren incident where she was ‘silenced on the Senate floor’. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell explained, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
Liberals are excited for the book to come out on May 30th.
Conservatives on the other hand, feel it may be a way to promote her mother, are confused about the purpose it serves, and think it may be politically inappropriate for the intended audience: children/younger audiences.
