Early life and career
After two years at the Grimsby Evening Telegraph during 1994 to 1996, Hinsliff joined the Daily Mail, where she was successively a news reporter and health reporter, before becoming a political reporter in 1997, and finally chief political correspondent the following year. She joined The Observer in March 2000, initially in the same post, following Andy McSmith, who had joined The Daily Telegraph. Hinsliff was the youngest political editor of a national newspaper when she was promoted in December 2004, this time succeeding Kamal Ahmed who had been her immediate superior at The Observer since her original appointment.
Although Hinsliff loved the job, she resigned in late September 2009 "to get a life". to move "out of London to write, think, do some projects I never had time for" and to spend more time with her "husband & son".
Career since 2012
Hinsliff's book Half a Wife (Chatto & Windus) was published in 2012. Eleanor Mills in The Sunday Times wrote that it is elevated "from the normal middle-class whinge" by "the rigorous analysis she brings to the wider forces that have shaped modern family life and how they might be re-sliced so that families can live differently". Hinsliff, Mills writes, "calls for a non-gender-aligned sharing out of domestic tasks".
In July 2012, she began as editor-at-large of Grazia magazine contributing interviews and columns. In 2018 she wrote an article on body shaming and included strong feminist views that some people didn’t like. Hinsliff contributes to BBC and Sky programmes.
