  Mary Stott Friday 20 September 2002  
In the roll call of women who changed other women's lives, Mary Stott, who died earlier this week has pride of place.

Her reign over the Guardian women's page began in 1957 and lasted fifteen years. As the editor she was credited with transforming its style and content.
The journalist Polly Toynbee, Sandra Schulmann from the Fawcett Society and Brenda Crowe who was then working with the Pre School Play Groups Association, knew her well.
Mary herself spoke to us on her 90th birthday and described how she came to choose journalism as a career.
