Following up SHE PERSISTED with this new collection of biographies, Chelsea Clinton introduces listeners to a group of 13 international women who have shaped history. She narrates her own words in a measured tone with deliberate emphasis on the refrain, "she persisted." Included are the familiar contemporary figures J.K. Rowling and Malala Yousafzai, as well as scientist Marie Curie, education advocate Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, civil rights activist Viola Desmond, soccer player Sissi Lima do Amor, anti-war protestor Leymah Gbowee, astronomer Caroline Herschel, Nobel prize winner Wangari Maathai, lawyer Aisha Rateb, suffragist Kate Sheppard, dancer Yuan Yuan Tan, and doctor Mary Verghese. Female voices singing cheerful tunes separate each short biography and add to the upbeat tone. S.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
