Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
In his explanation for invoking a little-known rule to silence her, McConnell said, “Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
Immediately, that became the battle cry of many women across the nation with #ShePersisted and #LetLizSpeak among the top trending topics on Twitter.
