Mia Freedman

Mia Freedman is the co-founder and creative director of the Mamamia Women’s Media Company the thriving, multi-media business that she started as a blog in her lounge room after 15 highly successful years spent working in magazines and seven disastrous months working in the male-dominated world of commercial TV.

With more than 100 full-time staff who work across the company’s many offices around the world including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and New York and an audience of millions of women ever day across written articles, podcasts and videos, Mamamia is the largest women’s media company in Australia and has the largest women’s podcast network in the world. Mia was named one of Australia’s Most Influential Women by the Australian Financial Review and with three children - the eldest of whom works at Mamamia - and a husband who is her co-founder, Mia has well and truly blurred the lines between work, life and balance.
