She Persisted Female Empowerment Pinback Button
During the Jeff Sessions confirmation hearings, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to muzzle Senator Elizabeth Warren. All she wanted to do was read a letter from Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King's wife, the subject of which was directly relevant to Sessions' character and racist leanings. With unbridled condescension, McConnell said about Warren, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” And just like that, a new rallying cry for the resistance was born. With this protest button we say: Thank you, Elizabeth Warren, for fighting like our democracy is at stake. We stand with you. There is no stopping the Resistance. (Notice the infinity symbol?)
