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.

Catherine Fox labels these the seven myths about women and work.
