Virginia Haussegger


Virginia Haussegger is an award winning journalist, author and social commentator.

Her outspoken views on women and their place in contemporary society have been widely debated in the Australian media, in public forums, and on talkback radio. Virginia’s seminal article on feminism and childlessness was ranked by the Age newspaper as among the most significant opinion pieces published in its 150 year history.

Virginia’s book Wonder Woman: the myth of ‘having it all’, was launched at the National Press Club in 2005 by Julia Gillard and broadcast live on ABC TV. She currently presents the nightly news for the ABC in Canberra.
