About

Persistent Sisters is the creation of artist Ellen Schaeffer, who was looking for a way to share with her daughter the stories of trailblazing women throughout history. As she started to create the trading cards, she realized that this was an engaging, accessible and flexible format that could empower all young women. Persistent Sisters is now an ever expanding collection of stories celebrating the boldness of remarkable women, carrying their momentum forward with new generations of persistent sisters everywhere. 

Trading cards and other gifts are now available with pre-orders via Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform. All orders will ship early December. After that, Persistent Sisters merchandise will be available here. For now, click on the bar at the top of the page to go to the Kickstarter campaign and learn even more about the story behind the project! 

With a broad library of accomplished women spanning the fields of science, exploration, writing, mathematics, art and more, Persistent Sisters trading cards can inspire all girls to find their passion and make it a reality. They CAN be what they CAN see!
