When she began writing She Persisted, Chelsea Clinton knew she wanted to create an illustrated feminist history book that celebrated extraordinary American women who overcame, who persevered, and who, well, persisted. This time around, Clinton is directing her attention to feminist icons from across the planet with She Persisted Around the World: Women Who Changed History, out March 6 from Philomel Books. Bustle is proud to reveal a first look at this inspirational picture book and its beautiful interior artwork.

She Persisted Around the World is the official companion to She Persisted, illustrator Alexandra Boiger and Chelsea Clinton's first picture book about remarkable American women like Ruby Bridges, Sonia Sotomayor, Oprah Winfrey, and Harriet Tubman. In this moving follow-up, the bestselling author-illustrator duo share the amazing true stories of 13 international real-life heroines, including Nobel Prize-winning chemist Marie Curie, globally bestselling author J.K. Rowling, prima ballerina Yuan Yuan Tan, and revolutionary physician Mary Verghese, among others. On each page, Clinton's inspiring text is juxtaposed with Boiger's striking artwork. Together, these two women illustrate not only the persistence of the famous women whose lives they are celebrating, but the unstoppable perseverance of hardworking, brilliant women all over the world.
