In 2017, the US Senate voted to require Senator Elizabeth Warren to stop speaking during the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as US Attorney General. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following comment after the vote: “Senator Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
The expression “Nevertheless, she persisted” went viral on social media as feminists posted it with hashtags to other women. The meaning of the expression has grown to refer more broadly to women’s persistence in breaking barriers, despite being silenced, ignored, or oppressed.
