Anne Scott-James started her career working for Vogue, she went on to become the first woman’s editor on Picture Post, before leaving to set up her own page on the Daily Express in 1954. Anne divided her time between a cottage in Aldworth and London. Anne was also the mother of the author Clare Hastings. This is a candid behind the scenes look at the first woman of Fleet Street.
