Ella persistió alrededor del mundo

13 mujeres que cambiaron la historia

Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger
Look inside
En todo el mundo, las mujeres siempre han soñado en grande, aun cuando les han dicho que sus sueños no cuentan. Han alzado sus voces, se han levantado en protesta y han luchado por lo que es justo, a pesar de que, a veces, sus voces han sido silenciadas. Ya sea en las ciencias, las artes, los deportes o como activistas, mujeres y niñas a lo largo de la historia han luchado por romper barreras y cambiar el statu quo. No han permitido que otros se interpongan en su camino, nos han ayudado a entender mejor nuestro mundo y lo que es posible lograr. En este segundo libro, compañero de Ella persistió: 13 mujeres americanas que cambiaron el mundo, Chelsea Clinton presenta al lector a un grupo de trece increíbles mujeres de todo el mundo que han conformado la historia.

Ella persistió alrededor del mundo es un libro para todos aquellos que han querido alcanzar las estrellas y les han dicho que no es posible, para todos los que han alzado sus voces y han sido silenciados y para todos los que, en alguna ocasión, se han sentido pequeños, insignificantes, sin importancia.

Las vívidas ilustraciones de Alexandra Boiger que acompañan este inspirador texto muestran a los lectores de todas las edades que no importan los obstáculos que encuentren en su camino, pues tienen el poder de perseverar y triunfar.
