Norwegian journalist, writer, and politician of the Labour Party. During World War II she was part of the communist resistance movement. After the war she worked as a journalist at Friheten ('The Freedom'), the Norwegian Communist Party's own newspaper. In 1948 she travelled to Paris where she worked as a freelance journalist and later freelance correspondent for Arbeiderbladet, the party organ of the Norwegian Labour Party, and the daily radio news for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
