During March, we will highlight the contributions women have made to historical events and contemporary society. This year, the National Women’s History Project has selected as its theme:
NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED:
Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms
of Discrimination Against Women
This theme comes from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s silencing of Senator Elizabeth Warren, while Senator Warren was reading Coretta Scott King’s letter opposing the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Feminists across the country adopted the phrase “nevertheless she persisted” to refer to any woman or girl who refuses to be silenced.
