Last month, in honor of Women’s History Month, Chelsea Clinton embarked on a three-city tour to Washington, D.C., San Diego, and San Francisco to celebrate her She Persisted picture books and chapter book biography series, focusing on female changemakers from sports, science, activism, the arts, and more.

The popularity of her four She Persisted picture books led Chelsea to partner with Penguin on the She Persisted chapter books, stand-alone biographies about female change-makers. Each book features an introduction by Clinton and is written by different award-winning authors; there will be 35 She Persisted chapter books by the end of 2024.

In Washington, Clinton was joined by National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Meg Medina, author of She Persisted: Pura Belpré and She Persisted: Sonia Sotomayor, and Rita Williams-Garcia, author of She Persisted: Florence Griffith Joyner. In San Diego, she was joined by Atia Abawi, author of She Persisted: Sally Ride. In San Francisco, she celebrated the She Persisted picture books with a book signing.
