Cathy Newman – The Ladder

Tickets £11/£9

 

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 politician Angela Rayner to scientist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, activist Rosamund Kissi-Debrah, film-maker Waad Al-Kateab, religious leader Rose Hudson-Wilkin and broadcaster Joan Bakewell.

Chaired by Jacqui Hodgson

 

‘Sometimes, 1+1 = changing the world. Cathy Newman’s witty, warm history on the power of determined couples will make you look at your relationship and wonder, “Could we be doing more this weekend than just going to IKEA?”’ Caitlin Moran
