Yes She Can: Ruth Davidson in conversation with Andrew Neil. The event will take place on Monday 24 September at the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster, chaired by the BBC anchorman and journalist Andrew Neil.

Join Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, in conversation with Andrew Neil to discuss her eagerly anticipated book Yes She Can, which will explore the life lessons learned by some of the world’s most powerful women. This very personal book is based on interviews conducted with the women who have inspired Ruth Davidson – women from all backgrounds, cultures and professions. Through interviews conducted by Ruth herself these women deliver their stories, life lessons and insights into how they got to where they are today. Interwoven with Ruth’s own story and interpretations, this is a book to inspire women through the generations to come. You will also receive a copy of Yes She Can, which is included in the ticket price.

As part of the City of London’s 2018 Women: Work and Power programme of events and activities, the City Guides (CLGLA)  are leading tours around the Guildhall Art Gallery and City.

Women have always been at the heart of City life. As well as those trailblazing in business, science, the arts and politics, there are the countless, now forgotten working women whose stories also deserve to be told.  Join a City Guide on these exciting walks as we celebrate the centenary of women getting the vote and hear about the lives and achievements of some of the women who have helped forge the City across the ages.  All the tours are free and you simply turn up on the day.
