Why Grace Coddington hates the word "fashionista." A Woman in the Crossfire.

I write about strong women who face and then overcome struggles. Here, from two very different worlds, are women other women admire.

She's smart, she's savvy & she's the opposite of meh. She's the Creative Director of Vogue and at 70, she became an accidental star. Now she's written a book! Grace Coddington.

A Woman in the Crossfire. She's a novelist who won the PEN/Pinter International Writer of Courage award. Is she a traitor or a woman of courage? Samar Yazbek.   (Warning: this is very tough reading at times but offers an insight into the Syrian civil war I haven't seen elsewhere.)
