Nevertheless, She Persisted

In February, when a male U.S. Senator sought to quell the disapproving words of a female U.S. Senator, he used an arcane procedure to silence her and said later, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” As we near the end of Women’s History Month, this exchange leads us to consider how voices for women’s rights and equality have always been warned, told words, and yet persisted.
