Want to star in Work/Life? Here’s how.
When Stylist launched our Visible Women campaign in January, we did so with the aim of raising awareness of women who’ve made a difference, celebrating their success, and encouraging our readers to become more confident about owning their triumphs.
This dedication to singing the praises of accomplished women has always been at the heart of the Stylist philosophy. Since we launched in 2009, our weekly Work/Life feature – in which a woman with an interesting career describes her professional life – has consistently been one of our most popular franchises.
We’ve profiled everyone from social workers to gin distillers, politicians to lingerie stylists, rabbis to cheesemongers, and their stories brilliantly highlight the breadth of career paths being taken by women in Britain today.
Now, as part of our Visible Women initiative, we’re asking our readers to take to social media and tell us about their professional achievements. Those who take part could be featured in Work/Life – and one will even appear on the cover of the magazine.
All you have to do is follow @stylistmagazine on Instagram and comment on our posts using the hashtag #VisibleWomen to share your story, or the story of someone you know. Alternatively, tweet us @stylistmagazine using the hashtag #VisibleWomen, or email your nomination over to Hannah Keegan at Hannah.Keegan@stylist.co.uk.
A team of Stylist editors will select six women nominated in this way to appear in Work/Life over the course of 2018. At the end of the year, one of these women will then be chosen to appear on the cover of Stylist.
Claire Green, a counterterrorism and security expert at the Home Office, appeared in Work/Life in issue 416 of Stylist. She was discovered via the #VisibleWomen hashtag after her best friend Natalie James commented on one of Stylist’s Instagram posts, describing her as someone who is “blazing the trail for women in government security”.

Throughout 2018, Stylist is raising the profiles of brilliant women past and present – and empowering future generations to follow their lead – with our Visible Women campaign. See more from Visible Women here.
