As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher - an ambitious goal, given her family’s modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but 15 years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington, DC, to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws?
'Nevertheless, she persisted' has become a rallying cry for millions of those fed up with phony promises and governments that no longer serve their people. In this passionate, inspiring book, fiery US senator and best-selling author Elizabeth Warren argues for a fair future for ordinary working people. Join the fight!
