The Channel 4 News presenter brings us life lessons from “women who scaled the ladder and dodged the snakes”, from activists to scientists and religious leaders.
About the book:
The Ladder brings together discussions between women about work, love, growth, challenge, the big decisions and the stories of their lives. Offering inspiration and wise counsel from some of the world's most acclaimed and influential women, this book is an insight and a trove of solidarity, turning over ideas of change, anger, illness, imposter syndrome, self-knowledge, purpose, how to not panic in a crisis and how to stop worrying you're boring when there isn't one. Amidst these pages are discussions with women who have achieved extraordinary things in their fields and pursuits, from politicians like Nicola Sturgeon and Angela Rayner to scientists like Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, activists like Rosamund Kissi-Debrah, film-makers like Waad Al-Kateab, religious leaders like Rose Hudson-Wilkin and broadcasters like Joan Bakewell.
