Lisa Wilkinson has ripped into Scott Morrison following his election defeat while giving a nod to women's rights activist Brittany Higgins after a barrage of female 'teal' independents kicked male Liberal MPs from their seats. 

Labor leader Anthony Albanese defeated Mr Morrison's Liberal government on Saturday night and secured his place as Australia's 31st Prime Minister. 

On Sunday morning, The Project host posted a happy snap featuring actor Simon Baker, and journalists Julia Baird and Jennifer Byrne, taken after the landmark win, with the caption: 'Well, that was a fun night.'

'This one's for you, Brittany Higgins.'

Wilkinson said in another tweet she was unsurprised Mr Morrison was kicked out of the top job as she slammed him for paying little attention to national issues such as women's rights.

'Last night's result proves that if you look the other way when it comes to women, the planet, corruption, bad behaviour and a refugee family who want to do nothing more than live a safe life in a country town that loves them, change is always going to happen,' she wrote. 

Ms Higgins, who made headlines after alleging that she was raped by a former Liberal staffer inside Parliament House in Canberra in 2019, responded: 'Such a huge result!'

'Amazing to see such an incredible group of independent women move into Parliament.'

The 27-year-old was referring to a number of 'teal' independents who steamrolled sitting Liberal MPs who previously sat very comfortably in inner-city seats.

Those projected to gain seats include Allegra Spender (Wentworth), Monique Ryan (Kooyong), Sophie Scamps
