Synopsis

This book is for every daughter, every mother, every aunt and every niece... here are the life lessons learned by 17 of the world's mould-breaking women. Every single one of them showed that yes, she can.

In this book we meet world-beating women from fields as diverse as science, politics, the military, business and sport. They share their own journeys to the top - whether that's becoming Prime Minister, winning an Olympic gold medal or teaching male special forces how to fight.

They share the bad times too, the challenges faced and difficulties to hurdle, explaining what they've learned along the way. We also see the author's own path as she tracks the changes in society that have seen women advance - and discuss how far we've still got to go. Revealing, inspiring, informing, Yes She Can takes personal stories and deftly weaves them into an equalities manifesto for the modern age, a timely rallying call to make the life lessons of this book a reality for generations to come.

In Ruth Davidson's Yes She Can the author interviews Martha Lane Fox, Rola Hallam, Frances O'Grady, Laura Kuenssberg, Lorna Hood, Maria Bello, Melinda Gates, Tina Brown, Seema Rao, Theresa May, Sheila Marcelo, Ruth Ibegbuna, Katherine Grainger, Gemma Fay, Sue Black, Sandi Toksvig and Kerry Kennedy.
