Wendy Tuohy


Wendy is an award-winning columnist and editor at The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald focusing on issues impacting women, including gender equality at work and in society, representation of women, women's health and safety (including gendered-harassment online), motherhood, parenting and family, work-life balance for women, and girls' wellbeing and rights.
She also edits the female-focused Daily Life portal across the Nine group, and the national Lifestyle section across the newspapers and Nine newspaper home pages. 
Previously, she worked for 10 years at The Herald Sun as a columnist focusing on similar issues, as well as doing fill-in hosting on ABC local radio, and appearing as a regular on ABC News Breakfast 'Confab' and Nine's Today Extra (before which she was an editor and features writer at The Age for many years). 

Wendy Tuohy has been exposed to a real world of life in the raw as a journalist all her working life.  She has interviewed the unsung heroes and heroines and witnessed the justices and injustices of winners and losers in 20 years at The Age and five at Herald Sun - with a break for babies in between.

Her columns and Herald Sun/ opinion pieces cover subjects including parenting (the good, bad and the nutty), work-life balance, women's status in the workforce and public life, portrayal and representations of women and girls in media and some lady pop-cultural themes.

Her entertaining pieces are also infused with a quirky sense of humour!

Wendy has worked in a wide variety of writing and editing roles at The Age, The Sunday Age and Sunday Life magazine. She was also a feature writer for the Saturday Insight Section.

She is an Ambassador for the Cancer Council’s ‘Girls Night In’ and Champion for the Breast Cancer Council Network, Australia’s Field of Women event.

During a few years full-time at home with three young children, Wendy worked as a freelancer which included doing regular stints on ABC 774 radio in Melbourne.

She presented the Saturday morning lifestyle show on 774 for several months in early 2008 and regularly co-hosted other 774 programs.

She has appeared on Channel SEVEN’s ‘Sunrise’ program, on Channel NINE’s ‘Weekend Today’ and ‘A Current Affair’ discussing issues in the news.

She is a regular guest on ABC News Breakfast, Channel NINE's Mornings show and Hinch Live on Sky News.

Wendy joined the Herald Sun in 2008 as maternity-leave arts editor, before becoming a feature writer and columnist. She has a passion for writing about motherhood and women's issues which touch the lives of the widest possible demographic of contemporary Australian women.

Her lively and entertaining style of delivery is sure to guarantee a full house at your next event.

Wendy travels from Melbourne.
