Roger Cummings, publishing director of Woman’s Own says: “I am delighted to welcome Catherine back to IPC to edit Woman’s Own at such an exciting time for the brand. Woman’s Own, 80 years old in 2012, has a fantastic heritage, loyal audience and incredible potential.

Catherine adds: “I am thrilled to be joining a brand as iconic as Woman’s Own. The title has a very exciting future and I look forward to working with the talented editorial team to drive it forward and make it an even more essential read for modern 40-plus women.”
Woman’s Own is a key brand in IPC Media’s GenerationYNot! initiative, which seeks to challenge perceptions of the 40-plus female audience.
