This group portrait unites some of the regular contributors to the iconic Guardian Women's Page. Established as a platform for women's voices and concerns in 1957, under the editorship of the pioneering Mary Stott (far right), problems discussed on the page often became campaigning issues. Some of Stott's regular contributors, pictured here (from left to right) are cartoonist and illustrator Posy Simmonds, journalist and writer the late Jill Tweedie, columnist and broadcaster Polly Toynbee and journalist and Chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund Dame Liz Forgan. Commissioned with assistance from The Guardian
