Parliament House rape accuser Brittany Higgins lands major $250,000 book deal after publishers’ bidding war – as memoir promises to include explosive revelations about her time in Canberra
Rape accuser Brittany Higgins has vowed to reveal more explosive claims about Parliament House after securing a lucrative book deal.
The former Liberal Party staffer made headlines in February when she broke her silence about being allegedly raped by a male colleague in federal defence minister Linda Reynolds’ Parliament House office in 2019.
Ms Higgins has signed a $250,000 deal with publishers Penguin Random House Australia after a three-way bidding war involving Allen & Unwin and Hachette.
‘I feel privileged to be afforded the opportunity to share my experience inside Parliament House. I’m proud to commit half of the royalties for each book sold to the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre who were a lifeline for me in the wake of my sexual assault,’ Ms Higgins tweeted on Tuesday night.
‘This book will shine a light on the culture inside the corridors of power and provide a firsthand account of what it was like surviving a media storm that turned into a movement.’
