Elizabeth Warren: Nevertheless, She Persisted Hardback
by Susan Wood
Elizabeth Warren shares the incredible story of the first female senator of Massachusetts.
Elizabeth came from a struggling middle-class family in Oklahoma City.
After a heart attack put Elizabeth's father out of work, she helped out by babysitting, waitressing, and sewing, all while shining as a star member of her school's debate team.
Debate taught Elizabeth how to fight with her words, a skill that eventually won her a state championship and a college scholarship.
As a lawyer and law professor, Elizabeth learned why it was so difficult for working-class families like her own to advance economically, and today she continues to fight (with her words) for the poor and middle-class in her role as a senator.
Releasing in time for the 2018 election season, Elizabeth Warren emphasizes the importance of being outspoken-of using your words to fight for both yourself and for those who need your help.
