Inspired by the number one New York Times best seller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book series about women who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds - including Clara Lemlich!

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Deborah Heiligman, readers learn about the amazing life of Clara Lemlich - and how she persisted

Clara Lemlich immigrated to New York to escape danger in Ukraine, where she was born. She started working in clothing factories on the Lower East Side, only to realize that workers were being treated unfairly. So she stood up for the rights of workers, especially girls and women - and she won, changing the way factory workers were treated in America forever!

Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton!
