She Persisted Phrase Inked on Dozens of Minneapolis Women
MINNEAPOLIS -- Women have packed at least one tattoo studio in Minneapolis
to get a permanent reminder that there's solidarity in ink.
Minneapolis residents Chelsea Brink, Nora McInerny and Kate O'Reilly started a fundraiser in which people could get a tattoo of the words ``Nevertheless, she persisted,'' for $75.
More than 100 women came in for appointments at Brass Knuckle Tattoo Studio
Their tattoos reference a phrase Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell said about
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was formally silenced on the Senate floor for reading
a letter by Coretta Scott King. The words became a rallying cry for Warren's
supporters and women's rights proponents.
Proceeds from the fundraiser went to Women Winning, a group dedicated to
boosting representation of pro-choice women at all levels of office.
