She Persisted: Patsy Mink

When Patsy Mink won her seat the House of Representatives as a Democrat from Hawaii, she became the first woman of color and the first Asian American woman elected to Congress. A co-author of the Title IX amendment of the Higher Education Act, she was a champion of rights for women, children, immigrants, and minorities throughout her twenty-four years in Congress. She helped paved the way for many other women to succeed.

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Tae Keller, inspired by Chelsea Clinton's enormously popular She Persisted series, readers will learn all about this trailblazing lawyer and politician! Kids will get a new perspective on the obstacles that faced girls and women before Title IX, and celebrate how pioneers like Mink demanded better. With black and white interior illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this early chapter book will inspire young readers to imagine how they too could change the world.
