Ms Jess


Named Marie Claire’s 2023 Changemaker of the Year, Jess Hill is a journalist, author and educator who has achieved global renown for her groundbreaking work on gendered violence.

Her journalism in this area has won two Walkley awards, an Amnesty International award and three Our Watch awards. Her first book ‘SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO’ became a bestseller and was awarded the 2020 Stella Prize and the ABA Booksellers Choice non-fiction Book of the Year (and was shortlisted for several other awards, including the Walkley Book Award and the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards). It has been translated into five languages and is ranked the highest-rated book by any Australian author by readers on Goodreads.

In 2021, Jess presented a three-part television series adaptation of the book for SBS, which became the highest-rating factual program in the network’s history. Since then, she has written a Quarterly Essay on how #MeToo is changing Australia, produced a podcast series on coercive control titled The Trap, and has produced and presented a three-part series on Consent, titled Asking For It.

In her work as an advocate against gendered violence, Jess has made hundreds of media appearances (including several on Q&A, The Drum, The Project, Sky News and ABC radio), and has fronted more than 350 events across the country, addressing community audiences as well as educating magistrates, police, health and family law professionals on coercive control.
