Ruth Davidson talks to Katherine Grainger at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

They say you should write about what you know – advice Ruth Davidson followed when she embarked on Yes She Can, a treatise on the power of inspirational women. When appointed in 2011, she was the youngest leader of a major UK political party and one of the first who was openly gay. In 2017, she delivered the Scottish Conservatives’ best election result in a generation. Davidson makes her Book Festival debut, discussing the women who inspired her new book with Dame Katherine Grainger, Britain’s most decorated female Olympic athlete. This event was filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
