Summary: Being a woman, raising children, succeeding in a leadership role and living a full life remains a tall order in modern Australia if you don't happen to be extraordinary. Being a woman on a board, running an ASX top - listed company, or running a government department remains an exception rather than the norm. Despite the progress made towards a fairer workplace, in the discussion about the lack of women on boards or the size of the gap between men and women's pay, tired excuses are recycled. Catherine Fox labels these the seven myths about women and work.
