‘Modern, punchy and fresh’ Sunday Times

‘A positive and fascinating read’ Stylist

‘A collection of unexpectedly revealing interviews with “mould-breaking women”… This optimistic volume also includes an intimate memoir from Davidson herself’ Guardian

The woman who trains Indian special forces in armed and unarmed combat, the UK’s most capped footballer, a dotcom millionaire, the BBC’s first female political editor, a member of the Royal Household, an eminent forensic scientist, an Olympic gold-medallist, the prime minister… this book is for every daughter, every mother, every aunt and every niece, as seventeen of the world’s mould-breaking women share the life lessons they’ve learned. Every single one of them has shown that yes, she can.

Revealing, enthralling, informing, in YES SHE CAN Ruth Davidson weaves her own inspiring journey with these personal stories into a timely rallying call for generations to come.
