"Nevertheless, she persisted"- Inspired Tech Wallpapers!

Ladies, this one's for you.

There are some pretty great images going viral right now, inspired by Senator Elizabeth Warren and her determination on the Senate floor this week:

The full phrase, said by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about Warren, goes like this:

"She was warned.

She was given an explanation.

Nevertheless, she persisted."

For those of you who haven't heard where this phrase came from, here are some articles to read: 

  • 'Nevertheless, She Persisted' and the Age of the Weaponized Meme -The Atlantic
  • ‘Nevertheless, She Persisted’: How Senate’s Silencing of Warren Became a Meme- The New York Times
  • ‘Nevertheless, she persisted’ becomes new battle cry after McConnell silences Elizabeth Warren - The Washington Post

The point of this post, however, is to embrace not only where the phrase came from but also what is has come to mean. Since it was uttered on Tuesday night, social media has erupted in memes, images and other media using the phrase as an almost battle cry for women who are so used to being silenced.

People are applying the phrase to other notable women such as Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and more.

 Reebok even released their own shirt design featuring the phrase.

This post is in solidarity with Senator Warren and other brave women who are fighting the good fight of having our voices be heard.


I was so inspired I decided to make a design based on this quote.

If you're as inspired by this as I am, here are some #FridayFreebies inspired by the quote.
