Column: Celebrating outstanding women

March is Women's History Month. As announced by the National Women's History Project, the theme for 2018 is Nevertheless She Persisted. The phrase originated in February 2017 when Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced during Jeff Sessions' attorney general confirmation hearing. As Senator Warren was reading a letter, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reprimanded her and stated that her speech violated Senate Rule No. 19. Later, when referring to the incident, Senator McConnell said Senator Warren "appeared to violate the rule." He stated, "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."
