A photo from the cover of the book "They Persisted" shows a woman modeling her marching costume for the 1916 Suffrage Parade at the Republican National Convention in Chicago.

Margaret (Midge) Kirk, local author and producer of the series "HerStory" has relased a book entitled They Persisted. According to Kirk's description, the book outlines the lives of 21 women born in the 1800's who have done amazing things, but have received little recognition. She came on Morning Edition to talk more about the women in her book, and how their stories relate to current events. Click below to listen.
