She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless she persisted. This mug traces its recent origin to the attempted muzzling of Senator Elizabeth Warren, the distinguished senator from Massachusetts, by Senator Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader, on February 7, 2017. The phrase was spoken by Senator Mitch McConnell in a putsch that was largely seen as a barefaced attempt by a powerful man to silence and stifle a woman expressing her rightful opinion. The New York Times described the imagery of Mitch McConnell attempting to intimidate and silence Elizabeth Warren, as a boon to women’s rights everywhere – a hashtag-ready meme for women at the ready to break barriers.
The timeless universal significance of this incident was not lost on women across the globe. In every country, across disparate contexts of culture, race, religion, nationality and history, women persist in the fight for equal rights. From Harriet Tubman‘s fight for the abolition of slavery, to Susan Anthony‘s fight for women’s voting rights, to Rosa Parks fight for civil rights, to Malalai Yousafzai‘s fight for girls’ education in Pakistan, to women’s fight for the rights to drive in Saudi Arabia, to Hilary Clinton‘s rise to become the first female presidential candidate of a major party, to Elizabeth Warren’s experience in the senate, women suffer globally from unfair, demeaning and derogatory treatment at the hands of a male patriarchal system. In all of these inspirational cases, the aptly phrased timeless global rallying cry and purposeful meme that connects all women throughout time, across the globe and from all walks of life is “Nevertheless She Persisted!”
The phrase Nevertheless She Persisted, has a universal meaning that transcends race, nationality, religion, social class, race and time. In every context, at any place or time in the world, any woman denied of equity or justice can connect with the theme of defiance to male patriarchy, with exemplary inspiration from the phrase – Nevertheless She Persisted. Women can live in dogged defiance, arduous faith, and hope knowing with certainty that as other women have prevailed, they shall also prevail. With this mug, you are not alone! In the brazen attempt to muzzle women?s voices, stifle progress, withhold dignity and deny basic human rights -history tells us women will ultimately triumph. Nevertheless She Persisted! Nevertheless You Persist! Get your mug today!
