Stella Rimington

Dame Stella Rimington, former MI5 chief turned novelist, discusses with Tim Adams her strangest meal ever, the state of the secret services and her fictional alter ego Liz Carlyle. The seventh of her novels featuring Liz Carlyle, The Geneva Trap will be published soon. Read the portrait at The Guardian / The Observer.

„Running agents wasn’t considered women’s work,“ she said. „But in the 1970s and the rise of Women’s Lib, we grew tired of being given second-class roles.“
Dame Stella Rimington was at the forefront of „a quiet revolution“ that changed the way women were seen by MI5, she told the the Independent Bath Literature Festival. John Walsh reports at independent.co.uk.
