Chelsea Clinton's newfound visibility continues: The former first daughter is publishing a children's book called She Persisted. Clinton borrowed the phrase from the line Mitch McConnell used to silence Elizabeth Warren, "Nevertheless, she persisted," which has since become a rallying cry for Democrats. The picture book will tell the stories of 13 inspirational women in American history, including Harriet Tubman, Sally Ride, and Sonia Sotomayor, Entertainment Weekly reports. "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 says in a statement. It's out May 30.
