In 1969, she returned to active involvement when Jeremy Thorpe got her to take over from Pratap Chitnis as head of the Liberal Party Organisation. However, due to the lack of funds in the Liberal party, she agreed to work unpaid. Her work involved preparing the party for the next general election which took place in 1970. During the election, she took over responsibility for the party's three election broadcasts for television.
She was persuaded to join London Weekend Television by David Frost, along with her BBC junior Joy Whitby, at the future ITV contractor's beginnings in 1967, and the two women were appointed to run the children's programmes department, although Stephens resigned after only two years when the company ran into difficulties. Before departing Stephens (with Whitby) commissioned Catweazle (1970–71).
She was a writer and director, known for Our Miss Pemberton (1957), Let's Imagine (1961) and Stars in Your Eyes (1946). She was married to William Hill-Bowen.
In 1953, she was appointed to the newly created post of Editor of Women's Television Programmes at the BBC. In 1963, she became head of family programmes, and one of the first women to hold an executive position in the corporation. She spearheaded programmes which introduced cookery personality Fanny Cradock and keep-fit expert Eileen Fowler to viewers, as well as bringing in Playschool and Dougal in The Magic Roundabout for children.
In 1951 she was Liberal candidate for the Carlisle Division of Cumberland at the 1951 General Election. Again this was not a promising seat. The Liberals had not won here since 1918 though at the last election, the Liberal candidate polled nearly 20%. She could not match this and again finished third.
In 1945 she was a Liberal candidate, alongside Francis Beaufort-Palmer for Holland ward in the Kensington Metropolitan Borough Council elections. In 1945 she joined the Married Women's Association, which argued for women's opportunities outside the domestic sphere, and the Equal-Pay-For-Equal Work Organisation, run by Thelma Cazalet. Along with Megan Lloyd George they lobbied the Labour Government to introduce equal pay legislation but the government refused. She co-authored the Liberal report The Great Partnership. This was presented to the 1949 Liberal Party Assembly. The report called for equal pay for women, equal training opportunities, better pay and more freedom for nurses, a much greater provision of day nurseries for working mothers, and a reform of the divorce law to give a woman an equal share of the marital home after a break-up. Gorsky told the Assembly that "It's easier to get a wife out than to get a tenant out". The Assembly adopted the report as party policy, making Liberal policy on women comfortably more radical and forward looking than that of the Labour party. She was elected to the Liberal Party Council. In 1949 she was a Liberal candidate, alongside John Beeching Frankenburg for Earl's Court ward in the Kensington Metropolitan Borough Council elections. In 1950 she was elected President of Women's Liberal Federation. She was a member of the Liberal Party National Executive. She was Chairman of the Women's Committee of Liberal International. In 1950 she was Liberal candidate for the Swindon Division of Wiltshire at the 1950 General Election. This was another unpromising seat that the Liberal party had never won. She again finished third with 15% of the vote. In 1950 she was Liberal candidate for the Bristol South East Division of Gloucestershire at a by-election. This was a very unpromising prospect for the Liberal party, whose candidate at the last general election had polled under 10%. Her vote in the by-election was just as poor;
Gorsky joined the Liberal party in 1944. In 1945 she was Liberal candidate for the Hackney North Division at the 1945 General Election. It was an unpromising seat that the Liberals had not won since 1923 and had not stood a candidate since 1929. Although she came third she did manage to retain her deposit;
In 1933, at the age of 19, she married a stockbroker, Richard Holden, with whom she had two children, though after five years, the couple divorced. During the war, she was a commandant in the British Red Cross. In 1944 at London University, she received the Gilchrist gold medal and diploma for social studies. In 1942, she married Jacob Arthur Gorsky, a London doctor and barrister and a Liberal politician.
