Clinton's book, which will be illustrated by Alexandra Boiger, will tell the stories of 13 women who overcame obstacles to achieve their goal, Entertainment Weekly reported. The women include Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Clara Lemlich, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey and Sonia Sotomayor.
"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," Chelsea Clinton said in a statement. "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."
The book will be published May 30, Entertainment Weekly reported.
