Packs a lot into 11 minutes

I hadn't expected much from an 11-minute interview, especially when I'd already read Isabel's book (which I recommend). But in fact, Isabel's clarity of thought shines through

There's one point where the interviewer praises Isabel for the thick skin she must need to cope with sexism in parliament, and instead of saying something bland and accepting the point, she makes the wonderful response of "well that's kind, but I think having a thick skin is actually a bad thing" - which she then explains. She's simply that clear on the themes of the book and the messages she wants to get across.

If you're curious - give this a listen. It's a great advert for her book, which she reads with just as much style as she shows in this interview.
